|trying to take pics of self wearing a shirt I had originally intended to use as a lining in a would-be reversible linen jacket (back in boro class last year)...way too complicated for me, couldn't be bothered to get caught up in that kind of detail; it was dyed in a black bean dye last summer and as I liked the dot-results better on the inside I decided to cut it apart and turn it inside out, although I have kept the sleeves intact and am going to leave them outside out as the seam is so neat and tidy; I'm hand stitching the whole shirt back together again and that is one thing I would never have imagined wanting to do, let alone enjoy! It was a large shirt to begin with and is still fairly loose so I'm going to use that quality (it's silk as well and has a nice sway) and will have buttons on front at hip-height, a wrap-around drapey thing over my tummy, a light material as well and home-dyed of course, don't quite know yet how I will attach the two...will see; still have the edges to sort out and then hopefully will be able to wear it soon|
2. On the right hand photo, your snail sculpted a map of Texas.
1. you are very welcome
2. so the snail is not just a hungry snail but a geographically gifted one as well
Hi Suzanna, hand sewn definitely adds a little 'je ne sais quoi'
I personally was quite taken with the heart-shaped design (not being geographically gifted I didn't realize it WAS Texas, so couldn't appreciate it as such)
from your fashion designs. this
and so many others are things i
would have done for myself in the past...and no longer have the urge
for. so i can vicariously enjoy
them so much...this one is just
like thinking snails have teeth
