When we make New Year’s resolutions, what are we doing but reinventing ourselves? Taking the old self and making it better – slimmer, kinder, smarter, well flossed…

So, this month I am going to show off a series of ReInventions of clothing. The plan is to post my weekly ReInvention on Sundays throughout the month of January (and I may sneak some in on other days as well). Here’s a sneak peak:

    Perfect. I want to do some of this rather than buy new. I have so many things in my wardrobe and drawers that just need a bit of tlc.

    Can’t wait.
