My favourite way to sew is to recreate an old garment anew! I love recycling fashion and am passionate about trying to reuse whatever I can! I don’t post/blog enough about it – will work on that! This project was made from a Ben Sherman men’s business that given was given to me. I used Vogue V8766 pattern to guide the making of the dress and tried to retain some of the features of the shirt such as button stand, collar and the hang tag.
