Sock-her suit

An outfit made from… old students socks. I held a sock amnesty and this was the result of overlocking and patchworking with the useable parts of the socks.

The top is made from walking socks with the heels for shoulders and elbows.

Trashion passion

I have spent a lot of time making outfits, clothes and costume out of discarded materials in the past. These days my focus is more on dressing-up costumes for the kids, and visible mending, but I hope that when the opportunity presents itself I’ll be picking this up again someday.
