Wow! Such detail work and clever design! I love the idea of using lace to tie up the front, very smart. I was so impressed I looked over your past posts - I especially loved the blue polka-dot dress (very cool mash-up of 2 dresses, nice work!). I hope you post more stuff, very inspiring!
My neighbors generously gave me some old windows, so I used one to dress up the 'ol chain link fence. I've started to get into spray painting with stencils since I saw so much gorgeous street art out in San Francisco (TONS of great stencil art on the sidewalks out there).
I'm going to try a new design soon, since this one doesn't look as good from the other side (would rather have a window that looks good from both yards).
Hi! I'm a friend of Batgirl, who says it's true that you guys don't bite and I should try to find you a the Renegade Craft Fair. I'm in SF for the month of July, I'm so glad I lucked out that the fair is happening this month! Hopefully see you there, Mary
Hello- I've been doing variations on A-line skirts recently, a fairly easy undertaking. I've been using the Barcelona A-line skirt pattern by Amy Butler as the model. I recently found out I can fit these over my head, and so don't need to bother with a zipper! Here's one that I did recently. It's 2 skirts layered on each other, the top one is 6 inches longer than the bottom one. Then I crinkled up the top one and sewed it in bunches through to the one beneath it. I added the bow to make it more casual, it's not needed for fitting or anything practical like that.
