It was about this time last year when I started Project Minima and decided to do something about my accumulation of things, especially clothes. What I had decided to do was remake whatever didn't fit, I didn't like, or wear. So now I have all this unwearable stuff that has become my fabric stash, so to speak.
I've spent the year re-fashioning, not buying any new fabric, or any new clothes, or even any new used clothes. Now the refashioning is mixed in with all that stuff.
What I want to do next, is get my dressing room to hold only what I currently wear, that is what I've refashioned and nothing else! All this other stuff has to go somewhere else and await reuse. I'd like to roll each piece up like fabric and store it on shelves in color order - like I do my fabric stash. I need to be able to see it, to use it. But that's going to take a massive amount of room - hence, the enclosed porch. And that will be a story for another time...
