Parts of white organza fabric scraps and parts of white satin salvaged from a wedding dress couture atelier were sewn together and filled with wadding in a shape that reminds of the cotton flower to make the sleeves and the high collar. Parts of denim scraps are also filled with wadding in a detachable corset. The two pieces are kept together by an interior string and can be worn separately. The item can not be reproduced identically with respect to the type of fabrics and their exact arrangement nor to the seams' irregularities. Each piece is individually cleaned, laid out, and cut at the Common studio and finished locally in Romania. Each garment comes with an individual tag that tells the story of the included parts, handwritten by the designer.
