Submit a Reader ReFash

coral

So…you’d like to share your refashion on this here blog?

Here are a few guidelines to help make it happen!

1.  I need a before AND an after shot!  Everyone wants to see your awesome transformation!

1.  No cell phone selfies/mirror shots!  Get a friend, coworker, or even a total stranger to snap a pic of you!

2.  I want to see your wonderful face!  Anytime I see a pic with someone cut off at the neck, I assume they’re a beheaded corpse and I call the authorities.

3.  Bonus points for pics of you wearing your awesome creation out and about in public!  Your refashion deserves a life outside of your bedroom.  :)

Soooo…send those Reader ReFashes my way!  :)  I’m planning to share one reader submission per week (just so you’re not stuck looking at my goofy mug all the time)!  :)

Cheers!

    This comment is not exactly where it should be. I actually want to comment on the sewing machine giveaway post after liking and pinning your post. But the content of that page distorts in my laptop and mobile, it brings all the content to the right side of screen, showing just a letter or two in each line and stretching down, and Reply link doesn’t work, which I tried several times. I thought it was a browser problem and even installed a new browser for it. (I viewed the content at my office yesterday).

    Just wanted to tell you your 3 excuses sound so like me right now.
    That’s exactly how I’m feeling right now, dreaming about all the clothes I’d make if I had one, and yes, I’m greedy about the sewing machine :D

    I just created an awesome sweater from 2 sweaters – Christmas gift to my college age daughter. She loves it. Only, I did not take pictures along the way – will remember that next time and submit it to you. I love the feeling of recreating something new out of something old! Debby

    I set a goal to refashion this year..I found your site… in my search for inspiration. I had to laugh at your submission rules- I break every single one! (Mirror selfies.. head cut off.. etc.. )

      Stahp it! :) Get a friend to take your pic (or just sit your camera precariously atop a stack of books on a table like I did for the first year of this blog!). :)

    Hey! I am creating a Reader ReFash but your link to submit it only takes me to Microsoft Outlook which I don’t use, and have not configured, so I can’t see the address this link would send to. Can you give me an email address where you would like my submission to go, please? Thanks.
    I love your blog and column. I have always sewn and upcycled, but you inspire me to take my creativity down delightfully divergent paths.

    Many years ago, about 40, I worked with a lady whose mother-in-law would go to the thrift shops in Denver and sew updated fashions from the clothes she found. The girl who wore the refashioned clothes was tall and pretty and no doubt looked even more fashionable than her friends. I sewed a lot of my daughter’s clothes, but never had access to a really good thrift store or yard sales. Love your fashions!
