Upcycled plastic clothing

These are apparel pieces made from upcycled plastic, giving a second life to plastic grocery bags and plastic cups.

The shoes are made from orange Nike bags and white grocery bags that I cut up and crocheted. The bag is made from plastic film left over from a previous project. The vest and skirts are made from plastic cups that I cut up, hole-punched, and wove together with stripes of plastic bags.
