I love the idea of recycling clothings and making one thing into something totally different and the RedHouse in Philadelphia, PA is the place to do it.
I had this big, disco, sequin dress that was kind of shaped like a mu-mu (big house dress) and I just swore it was going to be sharp and then i put it on...lol Oops...was I wrong! It made me look like I was wearing a dressed up nightgown.
Needless to say, it may have looked good in the past but it was really not the look that I was going for. So I went to the RedHouse and told Blu, my very special friend and teacher, that I wanted to make something out of this dress and one idea I had was to make a pencil skirt, but Blu being the creative genius that she is, took on the challange to help me tap into my designing skills. "What can we do to make it better?" After a few minutes of creative thinking I got it!!! A PEPLUM PENCIL SKIRT!
And there at that moment, the Elitou Couture Peplum Pencil Skirt. was born! Now all you have to do is wait for the finished product! If only I could find a place to wear it... Any suggestions???
Pic coming soon.... MWHAHAHA!
