fashions discarded remnants project...


recycling and repurposing old garments…


Throughout my art education I always had a fascination with blending different media's, graduating as a poor student, my finances necessitated that I find inventive ways to develop my designs. I used old newspapers for pattern cutting and collected as many old pieces of fabric and samples from work as I could and learnt to blend the old with new and transform my ideas into reality. I'm no game changer, but I do what I can.

Two simple and easy summer tops without having to leave the house or spend any money.

No.1 refashioned from an old yellow cotton summer beach dress, by simply cutting a new neckline and armholes then binding the openings, loose fitting and very comfortable.

No.2 Refashioned from an old stripy t-shirt (I loved the stripe but the neckline was a little high and uncomfortable) easily transformed into an old favourite the Alik Day Vest, great for layering and very light and loose for sunny summer days in the garden.
