1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Re: hospital gown for my niece in ICU on: September 05, 2010 12:40:58 PM
So sorry to hear about your niece. I hope she has a speedy recovery. As a nurse I see how even just dressing like a normal person can make someone feel a whole lot better so this is a great idea! If you ever make her another one consider putting snaps/velcro down the shoulder and sleeves so she can get in and out if she has an IV running. The nurses will love you for it Smiley

Finally some pictures!

It's a shame that the intricacies and detail of this dress cannot be fully expressed via photo because it is trully incredible! But hopefully these pictures will do it a bit of justice.






This is one of my favorite scraps. Its a lovely color and the palm print is really interesting. Theres bits and pieces of it in other places too.


This is the underskirt. It is just as detailed and beautiful as the overdress part. It has hand sewed jewels, beads and trinkets attached and is made of old lace, embroidered fabrics and delicate beautiful scraps. I would wear it all by itself if I could! The way it attaches is equally ingenious. It buttons through to the front so that you can see all the different mismatched buttons all the way around.




This little bead is sandwitched between layers and is among many treasures hidden this way!


Both the straps have awesome buttons! one is a little pin that says edmonton. THATS WHERE I LIVE! Such a lovely personal detail.


Ok, that was probably huge and long but it deserves all that space!

Thanks so so much again Wulf!

HA! that is a good memory jogger. Its funny too because in the pictures the buttoning even looks weird and wrong...

AHH! I am supremely miffed that is does not fit Sad   But i'm glad it isn't un-fixably small. And Its funny about the buttons because I did consider this when putting the buttons on and obviously got it wrong. And I can't believe I got the whole "WAIST" pocket thing completely wrong, its inherent in the name even. Well, all excellent learning opportunities. Thanks for being my guinea pig Wulf! And I do hope you can wear and enjoy it.

Wow, this swap has produced some amazing pieces! I was so proud to be involved in it, especially when I saw Cassadee's dress up on the main page! It certainly does rock!

I'm in the finishing stages of my piece and feel really good about it, just the details left. I'm a little worried about the looming deadline as I have to both work all weekend and (surprise!) move my entire appartment! Eeeep!

Nice work crafters! Kudos to making a jacket! I was really afraid to try something that complicated and large. I love the colors of the skirt, very earthy.

Ahaha, well Wulf, I gues we can both use ourselves as models... I wonder how breasts enter that equation though... I would imagine myself to be a bit more chesty than you.

Glad to hear is comming along and I'm loving the progress I'm making on yours.
