As well as unwanted garments of good quality, garments that are slightly damaged or stained can also be used as source material for upcycling.
The areas of staining and damage can be cut or folded out to manuipulate the good quality fabric and transform the shape into a more desirable unique garment of higher value.
The example here: taking a pair of worn out mens jeans with a broken zip, ripped seam and worn down hem.
Transforming them into an unusual denim dress, making a feature of the stitching and pocket detail.
