I've been busy this last week sewing quite a bit. I have some super cute stuff to put in the shop and I can't wait until I get a chance to photograph everything. The irony is with all the clothes I've been sewing, I haven't made anything for myself in ages! There is more than enough fabric in my personal stash, so I'm going to need to find time to try out a new 1940s blouse pattern.
I have however added a few items to my closet. My grandma was giving away a bunch of clothes so I scooped quite a few of them. Nothing vintage unfortunately, but a couple cute jackets and serviceable skirts. Today's outfit is consisted of nearly all gifted or repaired clothing. Other than the shoes and sunglasses, everything was either destined for the donation pile or in need of repair. I like to think that makes this basically a "free" outfit.
I'm quite eco-conscious, so I love it when I can re-use and/or fix things. And being thrifty certainly helps the ol' bank account.
What have you re-purposed or fixed lately?
