dc.description.abstract <p>This piece began with a large donation of fabric samples from a local furniture store to the designer’s university. Therefore, the purpose of this design was to create an up-cycled garment from pre-consumer textile waste utilizing a historic inspiration process as a statement about sustainability. The worn look of the samples, some even featured silver grommets and holes for hanging, brought to mind historic garments. The second source of inspiration came from the tonlet walking armor of Henry VIII. The designer cut all the samples into 2†strips and created a simple tent-shaped pattern for the vest using draping. Small amounts of leather remained after the vest was constructed. Thus, the designer decided to create laser cut leather flowers to adorn the hemline. A dress was created using flat pattern to go under the vest. The dress was constructed from an antique linen sheet.</p>
