my new favourite dress

May 21, 2009

New from old has been a hot topic around here at the moment. A friend and I both recently stumbled across the Wardrobe Refashion project, where you sign up to a 2, 4 or 6 month contract and pledge to either create your own clothing, or refashion preloved items. I do love the sound of this, but at this stage in my sewing career (can you call it a career?) I have yet to attempt to make any sort of clothing. I'm worried I will end up having to wear something that resembles a sack. I also don't seem to have the ability to look at a thrifted find and imagine another way to use it.

I've long been a fan of the grosgrain blog. Every week I get to be inspired by the fabulous creations that Kathleen makes from seemingly beyond hope thrift shop purchases. This particular dress has pushed me over the edge and I can totally imagine myself wearing it on a Summer's day, perhaps enjoying a picnic with fresh baked desserts and sparkling drinks.

  1. That dress is beautiful! I just love the idea of reusing and recycling (as you can probably tell by my shop:-)) By the way: I'm making more cookies today!

  2. If you do make a dress that resembles a sack... just tie a belt around the middle and voila, fixed!
