Recycled Fashion Tie Dress

Dare I say - If men quit wearing ties completely women will have a use for them.- Jeffrey Hunter

A dress made of recycled neck ties donated by family friends or collected from car boot sales.

I know very little about the dress and how it was made; but here is an explanation from my sister for anyone who is interested :

"The main part of the dress was made from a pattern and then the flounce was replaced with a collection of ties. Dress itself has invisible zipper in the back and is fully lined and has light boning. I collected the ties in shades of blues to match the main part of the dress.The fabric was a roll end which was going cheap" - Alison.
