Reduce Reuse Recyle Vintage~Inspired Fashion

Vintage inspired clutch available at "Remember Me" on Etsy.com
Long ago, someone had a pretty petticoat, or perhaps a sweet summer dress. It was well loved & often worn. It was "handed down" with love & care from one generation to the next. It became so stained & threadbare...someone cut it up for scraps. That is when I found it one day while digging through an old box of forlorn linens in a local antique mall. "This is so beautiful!" I exclaimed. I could only guess at it's history and wonder about all those girls who had shared this petticoat. 

I carefully snipped & sewed feeling the "spirit" of the petticoat ~ letting it tell me what it wanted to become...and now...my loving offerings to you.....
