❀Celine’s reuse project✿

A few months ago my mum was throwing out 20 different old coloured t-shirts, but I saved them to upcycle for use in this degree, or as a personal side project. In this course I saw the perfect opportunity to use these colourful t-shirts to make an interesting garment for myself to wear. I began experimenting with many different iterations of patchwork shapes and styles and decided on this horizontal, wavy pattern. I chose a 60’s style ‘shift’ dress because it’s a very simple pattern and I wanted a simple style dress to really show off the detailed patchwork pattern.
