Local designer Michelle Dimitris of Dollparts Design makes vintage new again: she reworks old pieces to create a more contemporary fit and uses remaindered or discarded fabric for her original designs. Things like buttons and zippers are also culled from secondhand sources. The results include ruffly dresses and a silk print blouse that in its original form could have belonged to your kooky aunt but now is merely hipster-eccentric. For purists, she also offers a selection of unaltered vintage clothing and accessories.
