The Scissors, the Stitch & the Wardrobe*

Another clothing reconstruction! This past weekend I took a nasty purple long-sleeve shirt that I found on the Old Navy clearance rack for $3, and made it into a halter top (that can be worn multiple ways).

Why this new obsession with reconstructing old clothes? This is due, in part, to Steve and I nixing the purchase of any new clothes from our budget. It has been a good discipline in simple living for us, but the little fashionista inside me has needed an outlet. So I’ve taken to rummaging through my closet for things to tear apart, re-envision, and sew back together. And presto! I have new, fun summer-y things to wear. Plus it beats spending $59 at Urban Outfitters.

*Forgive me for the corny title. I’ve been reading The Chronicles of Narnia in my spare time.

  1. The world needs more corniness like that, in my opinion. And OMG with the food porn below … please tell me the next time you cook kahlua pig and I’ll be right over.
