Mixed Greens Gallery
The 3 postings under this one are all photos of reclaimed garments from the Shoreline Community College costume closets 2005 clean out. The Rachel and City Birds Skirts were once mens slacks; I leave the waistbands and pockets adding darts and nipping in side seams and center backs to focus on the fun of the applied designs. The old menswear wools are machine washed to assure durability, shake out moth damage and just because I won't work on it otherwise. I like recycled fabrics but the residual body traces need to be eliminated, thank you.
