This piece was an exercise in garment upcycling. The original garment was a leather coat found at Goodwill Industries. The coat was disassembled and then reassembled as a vest and skirt ensemble. The leather and zipper from the original garment was used along with new lining, and a snap closure for the vest. The ensemble won Best in Show in the sustainability division of the Marin County Fair.
