My self-challenge is PROJECT: “Back to Elementary School Wardrobe”
Project Goal #1: 10 Re-fashions each month beginning August when I returned to teaching.
Goal #2: Shop from the closet. No new / used clothing for this school year.
Goal #3: Shop from the sewing stash for Re-fashion materials.
PROBLEM: My new school is very cold and drafty. Thermostats are centrally controlled and we cannot adjust them. I need a weeks woth of camis under sweaters to keep the body core warm. BUT, I pledged to shop only the closet and stash this year.
BEFORE: Too small black stretch cami from the closet. This was a body former type and I could not breath. Black stretch top from the re-fashion stash.
STEPS: Pull the side seam threads to open the sides. Insert lace panels cut from the stash top.
AFTER: A perfect fit cami to wear under sweaters on cold school days.
