Clothes these days are dirt-cheap. But look closer. What do you see? Sweatshop labour and harmful chemicals polluting the environment. And these cheap dresses don’t last long.
This lovely-looking dress (impulsive beach buy) lasted a few washes – admittedly, I wear them hard – before holes started appearing.
Fortunately, I have a very practical partner-in-crime (Jane) who came up with the idea of repurposing the dress into a reusable cloth bag:
It took less than 5 minutes to make this (no stitching involved), and I have used my “new” bag twice in the last three days:
…and Jane made a scarf for herself, too 🙂
Why was she tittering? Watch this video, which gave Jane the inspiration in the first place. Highly recommended (*thumbs up*) and may it inspire you too (*wink wink*). Looking forward to seeing more repurposed dress-bag around ….. and stay posted for more ideas, giveaways and fun.
