recycling old T-shirts t make lovely summer dresses! combining them with vintage buttons.
It's all good fun. And totally amazing how transformed old tee's can be!
This was a custom piece for a friend who has just turned 21.
The great thing with jersey fabric is it can be plaited and manipulated really easily once you've cut strips and stretched it it automatically rolls into beautiful "ropes" or strings.
I'll have to get her to model it for me, they're her shades as she has turquoise and blue hair.
Cotton is one of the most damaging crops...or it can be (unless it's organic) for the environment, so rather than throw it into a landfill to rot, why not cut it up and turn it into something new and beautiful??
It's really a pleasure to cut and sew.
