Prompt: Take a garment apart completely and put it back togther to make something entirely new, using all the original material.

This sleeveless top is made of tiny bits of red wool and rayon from a suit jacket I hand shredded. I used water soluble fabric to sew the pieces together with dense, consecutive stitches. The piece opens with snaps on the side seam, as well as hooks along the shoulder seam.
