They say one man’s trash is another man’s treasure…..
My latest make was inspired by an actual dumpster dive. A fashion company that I was recently working for was throwing out bags upon bags of scrap denim. One of my favorite sew sisters Alexis Bailey pointed out to me not too long ago my love for denim, and it only seemed right that I take that denim love and run amuck with it! The results was a project that I truly had so much fun making. This entire project right down to the very end, was a labor of love. I spent weeks sewing together these scraps of fabric denim during the height of audit and tax season. The results is my modern take on the classic oversized coverall. I’m a Southern Florida girl who has lived in Los Angeles, California for almost twelve years now (April 30th will be my 12th anniversary!), but I will never lose my Southern roots. I grew up in a little town where men wore coveralls all the time as part of their blue collared jobs, and this was my nod to them.
COVERALLS – A modified KWIK SEW 3389 – I took an amazing tip from the fabulous Tabitha Sewer in that I thought about what I wanted to make and saw beyond the pattern on the cover to use it as the spring board for the design in my head.
