In the first segment, up-cycling designer Michelle Paganini adds a touch of modern art to a refashioned shirt using three-ply reverse appliqué.
I instantly chose the Cindy blouse, which happens to be the one Michelle is wearing in the show. I liked the asymmetrical panel and immediately envisioned embroidery designs sprinkled down the front with coordinating designs on the sleeve cuffs.
You'll get to see a variety of her patterns on her show and tell part of the show. These are not really patterns in the traditional sense of the word. They are actually detailed instructions for creating new garments by creatively re-designing men's shirts. Quite a novel idea and a great way to turning nice shirts and good fabric into a one-of-a-kind fashion statement for women.
