12 in 11 July update

Nothing at all to report this month.  Nothing new came in either by purchase or by gift.


Not really wanted much, although we have a ball to go to in October, and I have nothing to wear.  I got rid of all the evening wear when I lost weight and it's the last thing to be replaced.

Finding a ball gown is impossible and I haven't the inclination to sew.  I suspect it will be cocktail length rather than formal length this time around.

While I was on leave in June I threw a few pale and/or stained items into a dye bath.  I now have several indigo coloured revamps - just like new clothes.  Hope to turn a few of my navy shoes black this month as I've had to get rid of some old favourites recently and the work shoe situation is getting dire.

Well done. I like the way this challenge pushes you to be more creative with the things you already have - though in my case it's usually new combinations rather than the make-overs you're undertaking.

As LynS said, good work :)

At least you've got some time to look around/think about the dress for the ball - I don't know what I'd do in that situation as I think I'd hate the idea of spending money on something I'd only wear once or twice at most. Could you borrow one from a friend?

I think I might try dying some things as a revamp soon too - just got to wait until the rain stops and I can play outside. I dread to think what I mess I'd make in the house!
