A friend of mine asked me if I wanted a dress of her daughter’s which was covered in paint. She loved the fabric and thought that I could make something with the pieces that weren’t full of yellow and blue paint. I have to admit that I never say “no” to fabric even if it’s only small scraps but when I saw the dress I quickly realised that I could rescue it. All I had to do is cut off the stained top and part of the skirt to recycle it.
There were a couple of paint stains that I couldn’t cut away so I hid them with the bow at the back and the yo-yos at the front. My friend was really pleased with the result and her daughter loved getting her favourite dress back even if it had been turned into a skirt.
