Patchwork is Sew Sew 70s

Denim Patchwork Bodycon Dress
Materials: Denim Jeans and leather jackets

I cut 9X9" squares from old jeans I had lying around the house.  I also had a few old leather jackets that I cut and tossed in for good measure.
I measured the circumference of my upper chest, breast and hips.
I then sewed the squares across in strips using quilters 1/4".
I attached the strips by row the length I desired using the same 1/4" seam allowance.
I added a "22 inch metal zipper (exposed) in the back.
I didn't hem the top or bottom so the dress has a slight frayed look.
