This is a dress I made out of an old suit jacket for the 2008 'Dead Threads' competition run by House of Rose & Brown in Saltaire, which I won. (Yay!)
The jacket was so massive it must have been for a 30 stone man. I reused as much of the jacket as I could - only the red zip, buttons and edging were new additions.
