Here's my entry. Upon reading the criteria for this challenge, I immediately thought of Undercover, the label by my man Jun Takahashi. Specifically, I thought of the amazing jeans he did in his first collection in Paris.
So I went to the Goodwill in search of materials, and was looking around picking out a couple things when the kid working there told me that on Sundays, everything with a certain color tag is only ONE DOLLAR. Perfect, I thought, and I came back on Sunday and bought this stuff:
Three ankle-length skirts of various shades of grey, a houndstooth tweedy jacket, an uuuuugly pair of black jeans, and a flannel shirt. The jacket and two of the skirts were lined, which gave me even more material to work with. All this, plus I got the first Whitney Houston album, grand total $7.05.
I cut the each of the skirts down one seam to give me three basically flat pieces of cloth, and worked freehand, which I never do, to make this hoodie. The hood was made from the stretchy waistband of the lightest-grey skirt. (I don't know what's going on with my hair today.)
I had to alter the jeans, which were much to big for me. This was extremely annoying, but they fit okay now. Then I covered them over with as many little patches as I could hand-sew on in the time allotted!
I used the breast pockets from the shirt and the jacket as the back pockets, since I had to cut off the original pockets while resizing the jeans.
So that's my entry! Hope you like it.
