Iris and I went through her wardrobe and threw out worn-out clothing (some from 2009!) We also went through some of my old clothes; she received one dress, three skirts and a pair of sandals from my closet. I bought her two dresses from Goodwill last Spring. She and her BF bought one graphic-T each in a BOGO sale this summer.
A friend invited me to accompany her to an art fair in Boulder specifically to support one of her former students. I purchased a graphic-T at a Boulder art fair from his booth. My friend and I selected the same shirt design for our respective teenagers and didn't realize it until we went to pay.
Two of the hand-me-down skirts needed to be taken in a bit. One of the thrifted dresses required a quick gaposis fix. Another mom-made pair of shorts needed a minor repair.
Iris asked for three items to complete her back to school wardrobe:
- another olive skirt
- another black skirt
- a neutral or cool-toned pair of shorts
If I cut or sew a little bit each night, I should have them done before my next trip to CA.
