Dress made from women skirts by Anne-Britt Sørensen Nygaard -

This dress is made from two large skirts which I bought in a second hand shop. They had good quality and because of the large size it was no problem to get enough material. I used a crocheted tablecloth as decoration, also bought second hand. The brown material in front is new. You can see more of my production on Pinterest. Search for Anne-Britt on Pinterest. My own design - redesigned - by me I love the idea of making something new of used materials. Clothes - furniture - home decoration. Photo: Norstock, Rognan, Norway

Welcome! Lovely final dress! I've added your username to our lists of contributors and to the label list. That way, on your next post you can label it with anne-brit.

One quick comment would be that we do like to see before and after shots if possible (though I know that I get scissor happy and start cutting before photographing, at times). Thanks for joining our amazing group of contributors!

Welcome to Refashion Co-op! This is a really cool concept, and I like how you've reused your materials to make this dress. Can't wait to see what else you have in store for us!
