Description

Recycled is my new focus for many of my upcoming projects, this is the first. 98% recycled material: the skirt was a size 12 rtw (bought at Goodwill); the top was from one of my mother’s never-worn formal dresses; the strap from a friend’s former dress; the beaded appliques cut from a skirt (bought at Repeat Boutique Consignment in Fo Co) which will/has made its mark on five of my designs.

Thanks to recycling, draping and hand-stitching, vuola! A new dress!

    It’s a gorgeous dress! And good for you for recycling other garments. I’m a big believer of taking something old and making it new.

      Thank you! I’m happy about how it turned out. Recycling is in my future, hopefully we’ll see it more in the industry as well.
