Fun and Funky Quilt

Whimsical quilt made with neckties and clothing,
by Caryl Bryer Fallert.

Fallert says, "This quilt was inspired by my husband's decision to sort through and discard a twenty-five year accumulation of old clothes. I wanted to use his old clothing to represent the high-pressure business man coming home and 'unwinding' after a hectic day at the office."

More information and detailed photos here.

Also, great quilting article about sewing with neckties, and several photo examples, over at Quilt Bug.

More Clothing Inspiration

From a newspaper article back in May of 2006, this dress was made by Tampa's Academy of Design and Technology Student
Tia Noto.

Dress by Shanel Riegler that has a bustle at the back.
I found this newspaper article about the designer.

More views of her necktie dress designs.
The designer is in the center in the blue dress.

I especially love the bodice of the brown dress

Gorgeous dress by Outsapop (lots more images on her flickr pages if you click on the link).
Her Trashionista Blog.
And, what is really cool, is she has a tutorial on Cut Out + Keep, showing how to make necktie feathers

Just one of the many beautiful items made by Mayabr.
