The beaded denim is from a pair of jeans that are custom made to order. The jeans were dated, but I wanted reuse them to give continued life the intricate work of the Thai artisan who made them. These items were all thrifted for $4.75.
I maintained the hem of the original denim pieces.
The dress is made using McCalls 7187 it is designed with colorblocking in mind so it was a good canidate for a denim refashion.
Despite being made of denim and with the beaded embellishment, is not heavy and is fun to wear.
