Alright all…when I began this year, I started with a most noble goal of writing a post every day.
I don’t know what else to say, except that wasn’t realistic.
It just wasn’t.
“But wait! You did a refashion every day for a year four years ago! Why can’t you do it again?”, you may be wondering.
There are pllllllenty of reasons. My day job is more demanding. I have other interests (like cooking) that I want to explore. I miss reading. I travel a lot. Writing every day made it hard to actually sew anymore.
Most importantly, I felt I was losing the joy of this blog by trying to make myself post every day, and then feeling guilty when I had to take work home at night or wanted to make a good meal.
So…I’m done beating myself up with trying to post on the daily. :/
However, the blog shall go on, and I’ll post whenever I can. 🙂
Let’s start with this $1 thrift store dress:
This one has been on the Refashion rack for a long time! I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do with it until the other morning.
First, I chopped off a big chunk of that bottom hem!
Then I chopped off a good bit of those sleeves.
To make sure both sleeves were even, I laid the chopped sleeve over the other, then snipped.
I snipped the leftover bottom scrap to turn it into a sash.
I tied that bottom scrap around my waist obi-style, and that was it!
I hope you’re not to peeved at me for my failure to post every day. :/ I hate to think I’m letting you guys down.
But, I think you’ll be happier with the quality of my posts when I’m not scrambling to just put something up every day.
