There is someone in the sewing community who I think is such a sweetheart and that I love following. Her name is Faith from @faithstjules . She announced that she would like to have a challenge where in the month of January we would repurpose any old clothing we no longer want. This was perfect because there has been a project I have been procrastinating for quite some time.
There is a picture I found on Pinterest that was from Alexander McQueen. Its a frayed edge jean dress with some rhinestone appliqués. I fell in love. I was thinking that the pattern pieces seemed small enough to be able to repurpose some old jeans for the dress. I also thought since I’m learning more in school for pattern drafting that I could possibly draft something like that. So here I go!

On a side note I did purchase some appliqués but they were from a seller on Etsy outside the US. So I did not receive them in time for the challenge due date. Oh well, the dress I think is pretty cool by itself.

Now for the dress…
