I often use upcycled fabrics for the underwear I make but I wanted to choose something extra special for this project.

My mother's wedding dress seemed the ideal choice as it no longer has its intended use, but I wanted to exploit its potential.

From something no longer wanted, it becomes an extravagant new piece to be worn on special occasions.

I had to construct these in a different way to the usual pants I make. I wanted to give them a lining, which meant making up almost the same shape in both fabrics and then attach these. The lining also came from the wedding dress.
