We're looking for a few good refashioners to join the editing team -- are you one?!?
We need to fill a few daily positions as well as get someone to take over as Instagram Editor. It shouldn't take too much time away from your refashioning once you complete a brief (and fun!) training session with one or more of the current editors.
Just think -- you can help shape the future of this blog!
If you are interested in learning more, please drop a line to us at refashioncoop@ gmail.com with 'Editor Info Please' in the subject line.
We're looking forward to hearing from you!

With some quilting cotton I had on hand in my stash, I made bias binding and a sash for more feminine shaping.
And here's the final result:
