So I'm fairly new to craftster, but thought you all would enjoy seeing this project I made for one of my textile design classes in college. The gist of the class was thinking outside of the box when it comes to techniques usually applied to textiles, such as embroidery, sequining (sequins make me drool!!! Ever check out www.ccartwright.com ? If not, and you love sequins, you should!), beading, fabric texturing techniques, and the like. For my final project, I made a dress of sorts made out of seed and bugle beads. I made the straps too long but am generally pleased with the way it came out. I was going to have it go down the runway in our year end show but it's very delicate and something seemed to break everytime I handled it, so it never had a chance to be photographed. Excuse my bad photography and the weird nude colored getup I wore so you could see it. Without further adieu: Thar she blows!:
Thanks for lookin', folks!
