Recycle Runway Challenge: Part 3 - Runway

This is Part 3 (Part 1, Part 2)

My daughter agreed to be my model, we went with dark stockings and Doc Martens to finish off the outfit. I did her makeup and hair (I back-combed and teased her fringe up following the tutorial here)

They had a proper photographer, unfortunately the next two photos are the only ones they got of Amber (and I have no idea what's happening with her face in the last one, she looks kind of terrified!), but you can see the lighting and the runway - they projected our starting garments up on the back wall while our models were walking


Overall thoughts; I found the challenge really fun, a nice break from normal sewing. I'm not sure if I would enter again, the night went forever (5hours standing the whole time) plus Amber said she wouldn't model for me again (same reason, the whole night just dragged on).

I didn't place, as far as I can tell the judges wanted the outfits turned completely upside down, ie - jackets into skirts, jeans into tops.

If you are interested, the library posted all the outfits on their facebook page

Time to get back to some normal sewing!!


  1. It really is a great transformation. Hope she will wear it again as she looks great in it.

  2. Your daughter is stunning! And so is the outfit! :)
