Description

Made from 100% recycled thrifted sweaters! This piece was made for an avant-garde/deconstruction exhibit at fashion school. I used the striking fairisle sweater as a starting point. The obi-style waistband is from a felted gray sweater and there is a side zipper. I want to see this worn by a Scandinavian snow queen.

Material Notes

wool, cashmere, cotton, and acrylic sweaters.
