To the Dark Lady


‘To the Dark Lady’ by MagpiesLaundry

My thoughts and my discourse as madmen’s are, At random from the truth vainly express’d;For I have sworn thee fair, and thought thee bright, Who are as black as hell, as dark as night.

Recycled fashion – dresses that won’t cost the earth

A little round up of some of my favourite wonderful dresses made from recycled fabric.  These are simply amazing pieces of dressmaking …. I’d wear every one of them, given half a chance!

The fabric for this dress is made up of scrap pieces sewn together ... what a glorious confection. I can't even begin to tell you how much I want it!

 

Jolis Paons made this dress using phonebook paper – pleated, stuck, sewed, and glued – all by hand (via whipup.net)

This divine wedding dress by Quiet House (Etsy) is natural linen and antique lace. Just love that fifties style ....

Gary Harvey Denim Dress: 42 pairs of jeans, cut up and and reconstructed to create a tiered ball dress with a corset waist. To die for

 

A mix of beautiful salvaged beading, Indian silk, metallics and chiffons. Sari-like draping over one shoulder mixes with a 1950s Bollywood feel by AmoursansAnguish (Etsy)
