Violet recycled T shirt dress, Purple, Orange Upcycled women's clothing, Drop waist dress, Mini dress, XS Small.

As I haunt thrift stores for materials for my handbags, I come across colorful, yet abandoned, knits. No longer useful to their original owners, I hem and haw and ultimately decide that I can give them new life as funky, summer-in-the-country dresses.

The dress (which also can be worn as a tunic) begins with a still-quality t-shirt, which is then paired with complimentary colors to lengthen and enliven. In this case, a vivid violet tee is lengthened with recycled orange and violet striped and luscious orange T shirts.

I added vintage pink seam binding, ruffled and embellished with vintage orange rick rack, and a rosette centered with a funky button. Matching orange and white striped knit is ruffled above the shirt's flowers at the neckline and embellished with tiny orange buttons. A piece of vintage Venice lace is tucked under the flowers, just for fun.

Altogether, a hot look for a cool gal.

Size: extra small. Length: 35.5 inches.
