I, Mirthful, pledge that I shall abstain from the purchase of “new” manufactured items of clothing, for the period of 2 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, renovoated, recycled, crafted or created item of clothing on the Wardrobe Refashion blog, so that others may share the joy that thy thriftyness brings! Signed Mirthful.
And so it begins. I thought I’d try this for 2 months to start with, which is kind of a cheat as I can quite easily go 2 months without buying any new clothes even without a pledge – I often have a hard time finding anything I actually want in the shops (though I will probably find lots of items I actually want now that I’ve pledged not to…).
