Bristol Saint Vintage: Upcycling and The Time Machine

Upcycling and The Time Machine

 St Vintage's mantra of sustainable fashion definitely has to be 'Waste Not Want Not' so i'm currently attempting to upcycle an old Gap shirt I got from the Bristol Free Shop (which I love! - I've managed to find Topshop, Primark, Gap and TM Lewin labels in there) 

This is what I've done so far! Still want to add some elastic to make it more of a dress and maybe do something to the sleeves?

H. G. Wells' The Time Machine (1960 not 2002!) was on recently, it's such a film of my childhood! The costumes of the Eoli caught my eye this time and made me think of the S/S 2012 trend of pastel colours
