Clothing Expiration Date?
Yesterday as I was getting dressed I wondered...does clothing have an expiration date? I was pulling on a favorite print t-shirt that plays in the rotation a few times a month and thought about when I had made it. Had it really been almost 4 years? I remember buying the remnant at JoAnn's after we had breakfast with Sara at a little diner in Oregon City. Tom and Sara went to the automotive store to get something for her car and I snuck into the fabric store. The T was a BWOF raglan sleeve that takes a minimal amount of fabric (less than a yard). It's not stretched or faded. The shirt still looks good and works well with my wardrobe. Should I be concerned that I'm still rocking it? I find many of the things I make become the things I wear all the time and sometimes the clothing I buy end up in the donation bag. Dear Readers, how do you determine when it's time to say goodbye to your creations?
