The count down is here. Only 24 more days until 2012. Sew Frugal and Fashionable has some great things planned for refashioning and restyling your wardrobe. We will take 365 days and redo at least 12 outfits. That’s right full outfits. That’s next years challenge. And we will continue to stay away from department and specialty stores to shop for clothing. Whew! What a challenge. In the meantime continue to enjoy some of our favorite refashioning blog post.

On Sunday June 19th, Silver Spring Sewing Sisters met to discuss creative ideas for reinvigorating and refreshing their wardrobes. We had a great discussion on options and unique transformations for clothing that has just been sitting around idle. This was our 2nd class in a four-part series. So far three students have completed their initial projects and are currently working on their next creative masterpiece. Our class will meet informally over dinner every week leading up to Part 3 so that everyone is engaged and being sure to make progress.
In Part 3 of the class we will discuss how to properly deconstruct a garment. There is a right way and a wrong way when it comes to removing seams, elastic and hems. We will cover the step by step process. We are SEW excited about the progress students are making. More to come.
