Create a Fashion garment from recycled bottles for your fashion show, fashion photoshoot and promotions !
This Instructable will guide you through the process, of creating a fashion vest from Recycled Water Bottles.The print of the vest would be your logo or a slogan that you will print to promote your brand or product!
In this sample- Fashion Vest, Size Small, "Saleyla* Stay a la mode" print.
Step 1: Materials
-two bottle caps
-sewing machine (100/16 needle)
-black trim ( cotton ,finished edges trim 3 yards)
-3/4" silver plated links- 32 counts
-needle nose pliers
-2" safety pin
-small gauge wire
Step 2: Draw a flat sketch for the vest
Draw all the pieces attached, the whole design with the trim embellishment.
You can change the design and use your idea,i always draw a flat first,which will lead me to the pattern of the garment!
With a flat sketch is easy to start working on your project!
Step 3: Cutting the Bottles to create a Master Pattern
-Cut through all bottles as shown on the picture.
-Lay them flat by pressing them on the ironing board.
-Steam all the pieces until they are flat ,they can't be perfectly flat,but flat enough to create the pattern,we also want to keep the crinkle lookwhich is more A LA MODE lately ;)
At the end you should have 16 pieces -7 "W by 5"L
Step 4: Coloring the Pieces for the Master Pattern
I tried to be more artistic and wrote my slogan all over the plasticrepeating each wordso i achieved a small print as a result!
