Made by: SelenaEon, Seattle, WA

About My Project:

I created this dress of all recycled materials (well, with NEW thread!). I created "fabric" out of strips of grocery and shopping bags, then fused the woven fabric, cut it out and sewed up as a princess-seam cocktail dress. The black piping and fringe is handmade from a (clean) garbage bag. This cress is fully lined with recycled fabrics and zips up the back with an upcycled vintage zipper.
