E. KY Woman Repurposes Items Into Dresses

By Associated Press | 

ASHLAND, Ky. (AP) — Dell Rachell's motto could be "Everything deserves a second chance."

The Russell resident has always been a believer in recycling and repurposing; now, she has a hobby/part-time job turning things like men's shirts into aprons and pillowcases into dresses for girls for her business called The Little Dress Co.

Rachell said the idea of helping children appealed to her. She devotes weeknight evenings and six or eight hours on weekend days to making dresses.

Last fall, Rachell said she sold her items at several festivals. In November, she began selling them on the website etsy.com and at Melanie's Custom Bows on WInchester Avenue in Ashland. She also takes special orders.
