This blue floral sweetheart dress was made from an old set of drapes someone never finished. With a full gathered skirt and open back it makes a beautiful sun dress for the warmer months. Elastic in the back and adjustable elastic straps help with finding the perfect fit.
Garbedge Designs is a Brooklyn born brand temporarily based in southern Maine. Created by Kelsey Parker, all Garbedge creations are 100% handmade and ethically sourced with a special emphasis on repurposed and recycled materials--hence the name Garbedge--giving would-be trash a second life. Garbedge creates elegant yet tuff apparel with an emphasis on the perfect fit, durability, utility and a detail-oriented style. Kelsey has done everything from a Victorian-era inspired wedding dress and groom’s wear to heavy duty denim work and lingerie. In addition to original designs, Kelsey offers custom clothing design, clothing copying, and tailoring. She can be reached at email@example.com or @garbedgeclothingdesigns on Instagram.
Because Garbedge uses repurposed materials, Kelsey is always accepting donations to pick through. Bed sheets, old clothes, bags & duffels (especially those with hardware like buckles, zippers, clips etc.), belts, drapes & curtains, jeans, Carhartt work pants, and blankets are just some of the items Kelsey covets. Anything that doesn’t get used will be donated to a goodwill or the Portland Root Cellar.
