If you were hoping my posting rate would speed up once school was taken out of the equation, no such luck. I'm going out of town from now until the first week of august, and the chance of my being able to blog is slim to none.
So when I come back expect a brand new layout, legit posts, and loads of back-to-school-sewing.

See you in August!

1 dress 365 days

I came across the Uniform Project while surfing the net last night, and I love the idea. Below is how the woman who started this project describes it. I think that having such a limit as to what you can wear encourages creativity to flourish. I've never had school uniforms but I think that it would be interesting to see how I would make a uniform my own with only accessories.

Starting May 2009, I have pledged to wear one dress for one year as an exercise in sustainable fashion. Here’s how it works: There are 7 identical dresses, one for each day of the week. Every day I will reinvent the dress with layers, accessories and all kinds of accouterments, the majority of which will be vintage, hand-made, or hand-me-down goodies. Think of it as wearing a daily uniform with enough creative license to make it look like I just crawled out of the Marquis de Sade's boudoir.

The Uniform Project is also a year-long fundraiser for the Akanksha Foundation, a grassroots movement that is revolutionizing education in India. At the end of the year, all contributions will go toward Akanksha’s School Project to fund uniforms and other educational expenses for slum children in India.

I suck at blogging,
instead of taking the pictures I promised.
I'm going to the pool.
but I did make the shirt I'm wearing in this picture so enjoy.

also if you are looking for new music, check out radical face. It's all I've been listening to lately. oh and the spice girls.
shirt made from a Built by You Simplicity pattern, in case you were wondering.
