Every summer, there's a whole list of pieces I want to buy but just can't justify purchasing at the price point offered. I also have six baskets of old, previously loved items from my closet that are either damaged, stained or clothes that might be perfectly fine but I'm just plain tired of wearing and styling as they are (moment of honesty there). Rather than give them to a second-hand store, this month, I've decided to challenge myself to create and refashion the items below into pieces that resemble the summer clothes I'd love to have in my closet.
I'm limiting myself to the color palette of these clothes and will allow myself only four yards of extra fabric to create clothes from my inspiration board. In the end, I may not have an exact replica, but at least I'll have been more financially responsible with my resources and hopefully end up with some new, functional clothes for summer without spending a fortune. Let the Refashion Challenge begin!
