Marie-Anna's Upcycle

Marie-Anna gave me a two-piece she had bought on ASOS but never worn; the shorts weren’t her style and the bralet didn’t fit right. She told me she envisioned the material as a babydoll dress, and so that’s what I set about to create.

I deconstructed the shorts to create panels and matched up the colours with some other second-hand fabrics I had in my store: a pair of curtains and some deadstock stretch fabric. After creating one big rectangle of patchwork fabric, I then gathered it together to make a gorgeous babydoll dress skirt. I attached the bralet to top the skirt and tah dah!
