Can't Let It Go

Restyle Items

Have you ever cleaned out your closet and just could not let go of some things that you really needed to. Well that is what I did the other day. Start cleaning out my closet. I did manage to get rid of a nice chunk of things so progress was made but for some reason some items I just couldn't toss.

Now that I know a tiny bit about sewing some of the the things that no longer fit me the way I want can probably be refashioned into other items. Dress into shirts. Skirts into shirts. Skirts into different skirts. You get the drift. I may or not be able to do anything with them because lets face it the fabric is not going to get bigger which means I would have to get smaller. I'll have my daughter take a look and see if she likes any of the fabrics and wants to try and refashion into some items for her wardrobe. These hips of mine are going to do me in!!! My recent frustrations with sewing are also making me think just restyling a few items will be fun and help me get back on track.

  1. Good luck with the re-styling. I tend to shy away from re-styling because, as you say, each restyled piece is generally going to have to be smaller, and I just keep getting bigger!
