I made this dress for my lovely 2-year old neighbour girl. I have quite a lot of old fabrics and clothes laying around, and for a long time I have been thinking about using them for re-design projects. This dress took form during the prosess of creation and is made out of an old jacket, a pair of filthy trousers, grandma’s leftover buttons and ribbons, and some other old stuff. I didn’t have a proper pattern that I could use – I mixed two different patterns I found to achieve the design I wanted.
