Description

I made this denim dress mostly out of old jeans that I cut up into squares and made into patchwork fabric. I used some other dark wash denim fabric to make slimming side panels and mini peplums (I used interfacing to make them stand up some).

Material Notes

recycles jeans, denim, fusible interfacing

Difficulty

Intermediate

    Really nice! did you put a lining in? How did you finish the seams – there are so many with that patchwork!

      I serged all the seams. There were quite a few seams and I didnt put a lining in (shhhhhh) so its a little crazy looking on the inside hahah.
