SWAP and a new twist

Well, I think I am in it for five dresses... if my closet will tolerate the presence of five more dresses.

And if I do it, which I fully intend to, I'm going to make another commitment with this thing. It will be from things I have or that I am given from other people's stashes. My mom has some really awesome clothes from the 80s, when they used way more fabric and longer hemlines in everything. Much of it is still very usable and very very pretty. I have a pile of green eyelet, dyed twice, that was once a beautiful white dress she wore in the summers when I was very small. It means a lot to her that I am using it, and it means a lot to me to have it.

So my swap, Coffee and chocolate, will be retro-inspired. With Stash. I think that's fair. I know it's me.

Oh my goodness! Almost a month! I need a kick in the pants to do this regularly again... I suppose. But it is as much for me as for all of you, I could point out... I suppose I should do a yearly overview, no matter how pathetic it will look.


2 blue knit
Jessica Rabbit Halloween costume

eyelet wadder

Istanbul pants

champagne cocktail dress
brown refashion
retro print dress
green dress refashion

Pathetic until you look at Sunset and factor in costumes, right?

Sickness mans sleepytime, so more tomorrow... I hope!
