A talented and beautiful designer wowed Twitter users recently by transforming an old African printed top into a stunning bodysuit.
20-year-old Alexis, from Texas in the USA, shared photos of her amazing work on Twitter, Briefly.co.za gathered.
The first photo showed the top, which she said had been laying idle in her closet. The second photo showed her modelling the finished bodysuit.
Alexis' tweet quickly went viral, racking up an incredible 11,000 retweets and 51,000 likes. Many tweeps asked her how she did it.
In a subsequent tweet, the budding designer explained that she simply "cut it up into piece like I would do any other fabric and then sewed it all back together the way I wanted to."
