Editor’s note: CC stands for copycat in my world, and this week, I’m introducing seven amazing refashionistas who inspire me with their creations and refashions. They see the potential in ugly or outdated clothes and refashion them into something stylish and beautiful.
I don’t feel so bad about the high number of new and refashioned skirts in my closet after discovering Audrey’s love for refashions and skirts at Skirt Fixation. On her site, Audrey challenge refashionistas to create something beautiful out of an ugly skirt, and I accepted her challenge. I’m not quite finished with my new creation, but I will definitely blog about it sometime in July. So stay tuned!
ME: When and how did you discover clothes refashion?
AUDREY: Because I am so tall, I have always had to refashion RTW (ready to wear) clothing to work for my size! But I discovered the lovely internet sewing world of refashions through the New Dress A Day blog.
ME: Where do you find your inspiration or jolt of creativity?
AUDREY: Currently, sewing competitions seem to be the most motivating for me! They just make me want to sew and are so inspiring when you see what everyone else makes.
ME: Which TV character’s fashion style is your favorite (i.e. Lucy Liu from Elementary or Jennifer Aniston from Friends)?
AUDREY: Sorry, I don’t own a television!
ME: I think my life would be meaningless if I didn’t have a TV (sort of joking sort of not). I like to have the TV on for background noise when I’m working on a project — kind of helps me keep track of time.
