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!
100% polyester all over
Leopard and snakeskin are the new neutrals.
