Hoping to be a lifer

Well I've signed up to Wardrobe Refashion for life. Hopefully my pledge will be accepted. I signed up first for 2 months and I don't know why I didn't sign up for life straight away really. I am committed to not buying new. I don't see the need really. I love sewing and really like the idea of making all the clothes me and my family might need, either from scratch or from refashioning things.

So I have sorted out my stash box.

Here is the clothing that will not be refashion but I'm just going to treat it as material.

This pile is material and various bedding I have acquired as material.

And here is the refashioning pile.

Just because we can go to the store and buy a new whatever because ours has a hole/lost a button/we just don't like it anymore doesn't mean we should. I really believe this and am trying to live that belief. Currently this pledge does allow me to buy thing like underwear, specialist sports wear and shoes. I am hoping to be able to either make them or get them from charity shops or used off Ebay. So wish me luck with this endevour. That and convincing Spadgersdottier that not being bought anythng new is a good thing!
