This is a dress that I made for an event called Discarded to Divine held in San Francisco, in 2008. It was also a class project that earned me an A and a night on display at the De Young museum! It is made almost entirely from recycled materials, old hotel sheets that I dyed various shades of blue. The floral detail and fullness of the sleeve and skirt were inspired by some of Dale Chihouly’s work. It was auctioned off for around $150 at the event, to whom I sadly do not know.

It has in-seam pockets, and I recycled the tulle underskirt from my junior prom dress do add some fullness. It fit me perfectly….maybe I should make another! Except…..the flowers alone took about 10 hours to make and then another 8 to pin and attach!
