Frankenstein your wardrobe

Tuesday, May 10, 2011

The benefits of banning oneself from clothes shopping, is the necessity to re-evaluate one's current wardrobe, giving a new lease of life to retired garments sat unworn for some time.

It is fun Frankenstein'ing your wardrobe; spicing up dull garments with bits of fabric, and using existing things from around the house.

A plain pale blue jumper, coupled with a leftover collar from my butterfly shirt refashion adds a bit of interest.

Colour matching with another mod podge shoe fix, this time some paper confetti butterflies from my craft box on a pair of previously thrifted Diana Ferrari shoes.

These minor wardrobe fixes haven't taken very long, but leave me with the same feeling that I have when introducing new (second-hand) clothing to my collection.

PS. Mod Podge Rocks!
