This is the last tutorial on how to fully recycle an outgrown denim dress into a 4-piece outfit: make a denim rosette brooch out of a sleeve and it’s hem.
I got this idea from the denim-roll brooch I made from a jean’s side seam, which was meant to match my 100% recycle tote bag. Instead of the plain rolling, I made a few stitches to create petals of the rosette. Without wasting the denim fabric of the sleeve, I cut 2 leafs from it to cover the bottom of the denim rosette and attach a brooch pin.
This method is not confined only to sleeve and it’s hem, you can use any outfit’s double roll hem to make. Also, it hasn’t need to be denim, you can try it on other type of fabric. Thicker and longer hem creates bigger flower.
