Wardrobe review with Roo!!! She took advantage of one day of her spring break to do spring cleaning in her closet! She had done a rushed college student/cum mathematics teacher wardrobe up-grade several years ago, adding a few things here and there, since. However, she felt it was time to give it all a good hard look. We went through EVERYTHING!!! It was FUN! We allocated items to: keepers, repairs, trash, donate, and sell if possible. So far, the yield is much more closet space, a large bag to the homeless center, more than $20 bucks in her pocket, with the possibility of more. The mending pile came home with me.
|Button with braided loop added to the purple top M6896 on the left for modesty and cuteness. Black and greenish khaki pants hemmed. Grey shorts taken in at the waist in the back to remove the extra room in the waistband found in so many ready-to-wear pants. The facings secured in the New Look 0926 sleeveless dress I made her before I became more savvy about bias tape finishes. Little summer top hemmed more to her liking. Waist bands of three skirts taken in - coral rtw, purple fine cord I made her several years ago, and purple plaid M3341 (along with their facings and linings!!! Big self congratulatory pat-on-the-back for myself there!!!). And...a new little black flippy skirt! (More on that below!)|
|A new combo already working!!!|
|Rosie was very happy with it...so it was all worth it! And, it works well with much of her purple durple wardrobe!!|
|Including her new skirt!!!|
