Repurposed Fashion

by Katy Brown of muchacha K handmade

I'm a huge geek for a good Oscar-viewing party, and it's not every day that a person finds a "formal" occasion to dress for where I live. So I get a little excited about these opportunities quite frankly, and they always inspire me to sew something fabulous to wear.

So here is this year's Oscar dress...and I would like to point out that it was made from taffeta curtains salvaged from the WalMart clearance racks. Total cost of the material for the dress was $25 (includes fabric, boning, thread, hooks, zipper). Total sewing time, approx 16 hrs.
