So today I'm trialling a new way of wearing this skirt, and I have to say I think this one is my favourite... I did like it how I wore it previously with the flappy bit over the hip and wore it that way first since that is how it was modelled in the book Unique Clothes Any Way You Like, by Natsuno Hirawai and I also thought this way was interesting. But when the zip closure is swivelled around to the back, the front of the skirt takes on an appearance of monastic simplicity, a smooth sheath uninterrupted by darts, gathers or any other fabric manipulations to mar the smooth fall of cloth... and from the back is this sort of droopy bustle which I think makes quite an interesting rear view, no?
Today am leaving the beach house :( and heading into the bush to spend a few days with my parents :) Depending on whether Mum and Dad's internet service is behaving itself I may or may not be doing any internetting at all...
Oh, and I'm happy to report this morning I got my confirmation email, accepting me as a Lifetime pledger for Wardrobe refashion!! You may have spotted my upgraded button already in the side-bar... I have already been living my sartorial life in this way for most of my adult years now anyway, with just the odd new purchases slipping in here and there, and just thought it was a good time to make a definite commitment to reducing consumerism and doing my bit to promote the rewards of creating one's own wardrobe.
For good measure:
I pledge that I shall abstain from the purchase of "new" manufactured items of clothing. 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!
