|Old clothes drawer|
So, how do I move forward with my sewing and styling project at the same time? Perhaps by cleaning out the closets, and getting rid of what is either tatty and past wearing, or in the wrong colour, size or style for me.
The drawer above was an easy toss - it contains old t-shirts and trousers, and I use them for "dirty jobs". Trouble is, I've been using them for years, and feel dreadful every time I wear them - you can see the white t-shirt is so yellowed. I know I saved my money for years but this is carrying parsimony too far:)
In any case, I've got newer clothes that I don't like that much that I would prefer to wear now instead of these - I don't feel so bad in them.
Easy decision - toss! Way past enough use to send to a thrift shop.
|Old Tatty Nighties etc|
Easy decision - toss! Not right for a thrift shop, they could not use this.
I do have other dresses now, so...
Off it goes ...to the thrift shop for someone else to enjoy.
|Skirts - too large and wrong colour|
Another easy decision: Back they go....
|Red skirt and beige top|
The top was just a plain mistake - I don't often do fashion, and when the ruched look was in, I decided to leave dangerously and buy a tulle top. Never wore it.
You know where these are going, don't you? Yes, the thrift shop.
So, that's some bags for the thrift shop and some bags for the rubbish/garbage bin.
Now I've freed some space and a drawer, I'll have to go and tidy up...
So, for now, au revoir...
