Description

A SIMPLE 80’S UPCYCLE – I HAVE UPLOADED THIS AFTER READING THE EDITORS PICKS FOR THIS WEEK – I LOVE THE 80’S.

I HAVE UPCYCLED A FRANK USHER TOP INTO A SHORT RED PARTY DRESS. I HAVE REMOVED THE LINING OF THE TOP AND USED THIS FABRIC TO CONSTRUCT THE WIDE HEM WHICH FORMS THE SKIRT PART OF THE DRESS. I THEN RE-LINNED THE WHOLE DRESS. I FELT A MILLION DOLLARS IN THE DRESS WHEN I WORE IT TO A PARTY ON SATURDAY NIGHT AND GOT LOTS OF COMPLIMENTSSHOULDER PADS AND ALL.

Material Notes

I X FRANK USHER RED TOPPOLYESTER OF COURSE – IT’S FROM THE 80’S.
