Reloved Revamped Hummingbird tee

Added Oct 22, 2010

Canberra, Australia






This tee is part of my debut Tango & James fashion collection as part of an eco collective Reloved Ravamped… the a twist… every piece is conceived from re-claimed materials and are one-of-a-kind items.

The shirt began life as a daggy box t-shirt and off cuts from my cushion making days. The flower corsage is from tiny scraps from cutting out one of the other outfits. The belt was originally a luggage strap, and has a vintage buckle (hidden)

The pants which went down the runway were sold immediately after the show, are loosely based on my “hot sass shorts”, but with Bella Pants style pockets, the fabric was sourced at a garage sale!
