Recycled denim dress with pockets

Added Feb 8, 2009

by re3ecca

Norwich, United ...






Little tunic dress which I squeezed out of the denim from a pair of jeans! The pattern is a download from the BurdaFashion site.

Material Notes

Denim from a nasty pair of mens baggy jeans, so horrible they had never been worn!

    Incredible that this cuteness was once a pair of denims? I’ll have to look at the pattern to figure that one out. But i love your dress – and the scarf

    Very cool! I have that pattern too, but I’d never thought of making it in denim. Your creation’s given me some ideas :)

    Amazingly creative! Such a great idea. Now I wish I had a pair of baggy jeans just to recycle them.
