What materials did you use? Upcycled wedding dress dyed in bright colors and then strips cut and sewn to a base. Decorative stitches adorned the pieces of fabric which were then used to make a jacket, purse and pillbox hat.

What are you most proud of? The stupendous stitching was fun to do. Nobody believed that this came from a wedding dress originally.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? It takes lots of time and patience but the end result is worth it!
