So, for our last project at college we were allowed to do whatever we liked, so i set my brief as being recycled, and set in another world.
Most of the things are recycled, bar the sack cloth, and the canvas fabric for the trousers.
I made 4 outfits, based on 4 characters who lived in the world.

All together:

The Water Goddess, Tethys. This outfit was made from a new but modified bikini, and the fabric was new. I was going to use an old Bikini, but my tutor said it was unhygienic.

Child of the Wood. The dress was an old nightie, and the sleeves are form an old shirt, and the lace is from lace curtains Smiley. The leg warmers are from an old jumper.

The back of the Princess ( And the model for the Child of the wood didn't seem to take the 'nude underwear!!' Advise.  Cheesy The princess dress is made from an chiffon night top, and from scraps of fabric, the lace is one maaaasive lace curtains.

And the Villager. I cheated here, pretty much all of this outfit is new  Roll Eyes


I loved doing this project, very very much, it taught me alot, as lots of things worked, but more things didn't!!
I would LOVE your C+C!!!
Oooh! Theres lots more chatter and info about it on my blog if your interested Cheesy !!
