Fashion Diary: Upcycle the Dress

since i love sewing even tho i still learning to sew a dresses or even a shirt but i have many ideas on my head. so, i decided to do fashion diary: upcycle and  repurpose a fashion item but for the first series i do the upcycle.

what is upcycle?
according to Wikipedia, upcycle a.k.a creative reuse, is the process of transforming by-products, waste materials, useless or unwanted products into new materials or products of better quality or for better environmental value or for me it simply sparks joy when i saw the piece.

this first piece was my bridesmaid dress from almost 2 years ago.

but i need dress for a special day, a month ago. so, before i went to Seoul i purchased a pair of cotton patches from @patchcottonrain_ instagram and have a tailor to sew it on my dress.
and it was ready for the special day, just 2 days after i got back from Seoul.


i feel a different spark before the dress added patches and after added patches.
and even now, i used some matching head scarfs :)

and yeah...that it is for my first diary series.
next, i mean to make fashion repurpose from a shawl into a triangle pouch that can be an evening clutch :) wait for it
