Fabric Choices

on Mar 7, 2012 in accessories, Blog, recycle, sewing | 0 comments

I’m working on a project with a magazine, and unfortunately, that is all I can tell you right now. I am making the project out of recycled fabrics. I’m using a men’s sport coat and a woman’s skirt. Pulled out the Benihana chopping blades and voila- the pattern pieces look good and the project is coming together. I cannot wait to tell you what the project is, and where to find it, later this year.

Of course, I didn’t pay that price for my fabric pieces. I purchased these items at the thrift store for $3.99 and $6.99. I did have quite a good day at the thrift store because I also found an original Burberry’s Men’s coat as well. I didn’t chop that one up- though I did a search on the internet and the tailored coat may have brought in up to $600 – $1500 retail* at one time, and based on the label, the coat is at least 9 years old. For my price, $6.99, it is still quite lovely.

*I'm soooooooo in the wrong business......
