The Story of a Dress
Peppermints loves collecting scraps. "I have bins and bins of them," she said.
The bodice of her vintage dress comes from an embroidered, cross-stitched tablecloth she salvaged. The rest of the dress comes from scraps, and in between the tiers, there is a little ruffle that once belonged to ruffles from previous projects.
