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, renovoted, recycled, crafted or created item of clothing on the Wardrobe Refashion blog, so that others may share the joy that thy thriftiness brings!

This is the pledge from the wardrobe refashion site. I am going to re-up. I think that this is such a great movement. I have always been intrigued by the WWII motto:
Use it Up-Wear it Out-Make it Do
I've also seen it:
Use it Up- Wear it Out-Make it Do- or Do Without
Use it Up-Wear it Out-Make it Over-or Do Without
Quite appropriate for the current economic climate, don't you think?
I made this over using a thrifted skirt that was several sizes larger than what I needed. The border fabric was simply gathered. I picked it apart, and used the fabric for the new skirt. Voila!!
