    thank you for the reply. The mindset of the American consumer is so off track with the "real world" we know now because of better science. However this is at odds with the old paradigms. Fashion can disempower that old mindset and do it with style. Everyone out there walking around in a refashion...

  • Finishing the shirt

    I posted a photo of a brown t-shirt in the Photo Gallery today. I like how it looks so far, but I think that it needs more done to it. Does anyone have any ideas of what I can add to it? I want to keep it so that it is machine washable and can go in the dryer so I don't want to add something like...

    I'm going to a "play day" Saturday the 30th with some artist friends. One of the things I'm planning to do there is to refashion a jersey I bought. It has black and white horizontal stripes and looked so cute on the hanger that I didn't bother to try it on. When I wear it, I look...

    I'll try and take photos and post them this weekend. The other teachers look forward to seeing what I'll do with the latest shirt. It has become like a personal challenge for me to do each one differently. If any of you out there see anything on the web about redoing polo shirts let me know.

    I think the idea of changing the polo shirts is a very good idea. Do you have any photos anywhere? What kind of comments do you get from the other teachers? I just blogged about another skirt I changed. You can see it here . Actually, I also just got an email a few minutes ago from a newspaper. They...

    I'm a teacher at a public school and at the beginning of each school year they give us a shirt. Each year they are a different color and they are the polo type shirts with a couple of buttons down the front and a collar. They are always men's sizes and aren't very flattering. I take them...
