Meet Bridget Sullivan
What is your overall opinion of this month’s challenge?
Awesome! I love using recycled and eco-friendly materials for my designs. This was right up my alley!
What did you enjoy most?
I liked the challenge of completely transforming a dated garment into something relevant for today’s fashion, and creating a one-of-a-kind art piece.
What did you like least?
The process of designing and creatine is completely positive, I have nothing negative to say about the process.
Would you sew it again?
Learn anything new? Any advice for others working on this project?
This was the first time I used acrylic paints on a vintage garment. This was so much fun, I loved experimenting and creating a new technique. My advice for someone choosing a garment to paint on is pick something light colored and heavy fabric enough to paint on, as paint can weigh down lightweight fabrics.
