Sometimes I feel like nothing can inspire me… so I start thinking something else and suddenly inspiration comes!
You should do the same, and save from trash some of your closet’s treasures… let them rest for a while, the only thing you need is some space where you can put them… and think to something else!
My favorite sources of Refashion Inspiration are:
Obviously, the first place where I go when I’m searching for inspiration is Pinterest, my muse!
And the first place where I look when inspiration I’m searching for is refashion related is our Group Board “A Refashion Obsession Mood Board” (are you in? Ask me to add you!).
Here we pin everything refashion related: something we’ve created, something we’ve seen, plain-vanilla inspiration…
Or, you can simply browse between Pinterest Categories and search for fashion ideas… trying to imagine which look you can easily recreate using pre-loved garments you have in hand!
If you don’t know this blog… you’re loosing something good! I wrote for them for a while, it’s a place where refashionistas from all over the world shares their good ideas… Amazing!
It’s a WorldWide BrainStorming thing!
They describe themselves as:
A worldwide collaborative blog to showcase refashioned clothing projects
and share techniques!
3. Ready-to-wear sites/magazines
Do you know when you’re in the dentist’s waiting room, looking at a fashion magazine, thinking: “I could easily do this $ 300,00 dress, using a curtain and a couple of jeans scraps!“?
You can do the same while browsing the net, searching for small and big brands sites and
stealing being inspired from their cool ideas.

As always, my best tip is “Think outside the box”:
- a holed sock can become a fancy cuff
- an old bath towel can substitute babies disposable intimate care (we upcycled a couple of sea towels just ripping them in squares and zig-zagging the edges, just like my mom used to do transforming old bed sheets in dusters, reusing all those bobbins half-filled in thread, leftover from some other project: I love a double recycle, it doubles the fun)
- … you can go on filling this list just opening your closet and letting your imagination fly!
keep it simple
Often a quick fix can give a whole new life to an old ill-fitting garment…
