Catch phrase of the 21st century for the DIY crew, but I think everyone should get on board. It's creative and artistic besides being good for the environment.
I like when something I've reconstructed shows up in an upcycled theme treasury. Here's a halter top I made from a vintage maxi skirt. The fabric is so bright, it was overpowering as a skirt, so I cut it down into not only this halter top, but a purse which I sold a couple summers ago...and believe it or not, I have a second skirt in my collection ! I found them at the same time...not sure if they were worn by twins or what, but boy is it a loud print.
