Emily's Refashioned Wardrobe




What teenager doesn't like new and more clothes? A friend in our homeschool group had been given a lot of clothes that she couldn't use. So she dropped them off for us. Thank you, Lisa!



They were very nice brand name clothing. A few things fit Emily, but many didn't. I altered
and sized down:

5-pairs of pants, 1-Banana Republic sweater, 2-pairs of PJ's, 1-cami,
2-hoodies, 10-shirts, and a partiage in a pear tree :)

We also dyed all the white items, using Rit Dye. Teal, denim and purple.

Now Emily has a big wardrobe of clothes to choose from.

How fun!!! And I love your new skirt and sweater set too. Very chic and pulled-together. I'll have to go check out that blog. Sounds fun!

So fun to see what others are doing. Makes you think about recycle, reuse, remake & sew....
Awesome!

Hi Kristine,
Thanks for the encouragement in your posts to use what we have and share what we don't need. I'm inspired! I'm in Federal Way, with husband and 5 at home. We homeschool and are with CVA.
