    Remaking garments is one of my favorite things to do. Here in New Orleans, we have a great clearinghouse of recycled everything (including paint). Each year they sponsor a design/fabrication contest which I believe is called "Worn Again". Each entrant gets a bag filled with discarded clothing and recycled fabric; the challenge is to make a new, wearable outfit. All entries are worn and judged in a fashion show at contest's end. It's a great showcase for inspiring recycling and reusing in a fashionable way. They also have a similar contest for furniture building from recycled material. I'm sure they can be found by googling Green Project New Orleans. I think every locale should host a similar show, and you would certainly be a force to be reckoned with in such a contest.
