My refashion pile of clothes has been getting out of control lately. I throw things in the pile if something doesn’t fit me right, needs to be repaired or is too boring. Over the weekend I dug through it and pulled out anything that was dark in color and could be sewn with black thread. For some reason, changing the color thread feels like a big pain in the booty and it deters me from sewing sometimes.
I pulled out 9 pieces of clothing and got to work. One shirt and one pair of pants were beyond my refashion skills and will be donated. Another shirt looked just fine to me as is; I can’t remember why I threw it into the refashion pile. Another skirt’s hem was repaired, a black shirt perfect for work just needed a little help to keep the front modest.
The two best projects were taking some boot-cut yoga pants and slimming them down to something and then using the scraps from the yoga pants to create wider straps for a tank top.
I felt productive getting all that black out of my pile and into my closet/ donate pile….let’s see what color’s up next!
