new dress & people I admire

sometimes I make my own clothes.


I followed the pattern on the far left very closely. And since it is meant for a teen girl, I thought I was making it for my younger sister, until it fit me. :)

I also made a pair of very plain straight legged black pants that too boring to photograph. a drawing instead....

Anyone else feeling drained this week? Maybe it's the aftermath of craftwerk.
Oh yeah, as Lies said, I will be bringing you a craftwerk post very soon. Just not today.


Before I go I want to especially thank Victoria for the most thoughtful package full of books (3d illustrations are much appreciated!), pillow cases which will be transformed into something else at a later date, and some photo transfer paper.
Victoria uses this paper to transfer images onto fabric as part of her art. I am a big admirer of her daily journal art work project she has going on. Check her out here at DEAR MEGAN.

here are some of my favourite examples of her work.....




A beautiful combination of textiles, photography, and drawing. Thanks Victoria... I am now feeling less tired and more inspired after posting your work.


until we meet again in blogland....

The lady is more stunning than the gorgeous dress - so glad to see a picture of you. Warms my heart, like the sun in your hair.

Ah ha, glad you got the package.
And you look very stylish.

p.s. now that I'm moved into my new house that pink bathroom is a welcome haven of pattern because the rest of the place is painted white.

so nice to see you! that dress is really fab- it kind of reminds me a bit of that amy butler tunic but i love the way you've mixed fabrics for a really unique look.
i adore victoria's blog too- and her artwork!
