Wardrobe Refashion

A couple of weeks ago I've signed up for two months on Wardrobe Refashion and I'm taking the pledge.

The Pledge
I Nancy pledge that I shall abstain from the purchase of "new" manufactured items of clothing, for the period of 2 / 4 / 6 months. I pledge that i shall refashion, renovate, recycle preloved items for myself with my own hands in fabric, yarn or other medium for the term of my contract. I pledge that I will share the love and post a photo of my refashioned, renovoted, recycled, crafted or created item of clothing on the Wardrobe Refashion blog, so that others may share the joy that thy thriftiness brings!

Here's my introduction to Wardrobe Refashion.

What is Sewing Drama?

I've created Sewing Drama for beginners, novice or amateurs like me. I've decided to start sewing this Fall/Winter and I know very well that I will encounter a lot of drama in my sewing expedition.

I have a few patterns that I'm itching to get started, but I haven't found the right fabrics that will go with the patterns. I'm still searching on Ebay for those fabrics and other places online, too. The fabric can be very expensive. I'm waiting when it goes on Sale.

Also, I've taken the pledge at Wardrobe Refashion. It will be on my next post with more details.

I will leave you with this whatever sewing drama I come across I will definitely find an easier method to sew or to find a few sewing shortcuts.

Hopefully, there will be some experience sewists that will recommend some assistance in my sewing dramas.
