Design Description

Over 300 feather-like shapes were cut from orthotic insole offcuts & hand sewn onto an old dress to create this eye catching unique design. Old carpet inserts from a local carpet shop were cut into circles, sprayed silver, and sewn onto the dress using fishing tackle. We used old fencing wire to shape the skirt & attached more carpet roll circles to that. The headpiece is made from thin leftover insole scraps which were made into teardrop shapes. We finished the dress by placing lots of flowers inside some circles which we also made from offcuts and spray painted gold.
