Patchwork ‘Crew’ dress


The recycled nature and the spontaneous way I work with features from the original garment and collage off cuts, means each piece is unique and unrepeatable. Handmade at my studio / shop “Fabrications” in Hackney, East London. I hope you will enjoy wearing this item as much as I did making it! This piece also incorporates offcuts of printed organic cotton from local textile designer Kitty Joseph’s studio.

Please Note: This item is made from stretch cotton jersey. Panels are overlocked together.
