I made this dress and hat out of coffee bean, burlap sacks. Given them by Joe Bean to be part of there "Single Origin Fashion Project" the winners will be part of the "From the Ground" fashion show.
Yesterday I cut and dyed the sacks a lilac, purple. Today I fashioned a dress as well as a hat, accompanied by some black lace and a purple cord I have had.
Today I submitted it to Thread on South Ave. and so to the greentopia festival, supported by Joe Bean on University.
From the Ground is a recycled fashion show on September 15th and 16th, 61 Commercial Street, here in Rochester, NY.
