Description

I’m always curious to see how my dress will look like after cutting apart several garments to make it..! My mum’s old sweater is the eye-catching for this dress, and it makes me Happy to wear it because it remains me of her ♥ The red top is from the wool dress and the sleeves from the white sweater. For the waist I have used a part of the wool top. I made pockets for the skirt and sewed an exposed zipper in front. The collar is made of a piece I have left from a cardigan.

    OMG, I’m going to be like everybody who sees my creations…“I want one” haha. It turned out amazing. I guess we all get to the point that we want to Frankenstein the clothes we don’t use or fit into new gorgeous pieces!

    Ellen this turned out just fabulous. I love how creative you are and you placed the parts perfectly. Your mum’s jumper as the skirt is just wonderful x
