A cowgirl style shirt upcycled from vintage fabric. Seems a label in the US (Urban Outfitters) has an vintage:upcyling:remade sort of sub-label called - Urban Renewal. I love the idea.
Lets hope it takes off and more labels get into it...goodness knows there is enough stuff in the world. Plus, i can see upcycled labels like this with a potential to buying off crafty folks like me and you. Good plan.
And i love the quirky little detail in the back, hidden under the collar, where you can see the embroidery from the original shirt disappear under the seam. Clothes like this have history. They have attitude.
I like that.
