This project connected three different unique pieces, a sequins top and a dress of different sizes and completely different material, and old tie. Keeping with the zero-waste spirit, the idea of the project was to use all the elements of all the pieces to combine them into one dress.
- A sequins marron top.
- A plaid small dress.
- Her husband's old tie.
- The Dress was ripped into 7 pieces which were then sewed back at different locations on the sequins Top. The tie was used as a transitioning and playful element between the top and the lower part of the dress. Some of the sewing had to be done by hand instead of the machine.
- The various parts (the front left with the buttons, the bottom part, and the back) of the original dress had to be used and sewed together (in a rather asymmetric way) to form the lower part of the new dress. This was challenging as the original dress was quite small and very limited material was available.
