Holy cow.  I'm so impressed!!

I love:

-that you used embroidery to accent the fabric and add the "fuck cancer" part to it
-the stitches, they look great!
-the framing, wow!  I wouldn't have the balls to stretch it like that!
-the uniqueness!!  The idea is so cool and then stretching it like a canvas and the black on the edges is f'in beautiful.
-how clean it is.  The back is even pretty. 

Great job! 

Wow, thank you!  The back of that thing is a disaster under the muslin, let me tell you.  I did learn a few things from that first attempt at stretching and think it will go better this time; I'm working on a stitch using a different scene from that toile right now that I plan to mount in a similar way.

So adorable!  I agree that the apron would look even cuter a bit short so you could see more of the skirt trim and have a nice black edge all around the apron to show it off more, too.  I think a dirdl-esque shirt would be super cute.  A riff on a peasant blouse kind of thing.

These are really neat!  You've really got a nice balance between bright, layered colors and keeping the focus on the photo.

Oh! I can't wait to see this gallery!  I'm even watching Hot Fuzz right this minute, so it must be my destiny.

We put it to the test over the Labor Day weekend at the beach.  Worked great!  WHEW!

I've just made my first strip of bias binding. My daughter (14) has grown up a bit more recently. so a dress that she wore to a wedding last year, no longer fits, It was a pretty maroon colour, so I let a panel of black into each side, flaring out a bit at the end, I used the (Dritz) 1" bias maker to make a strip that I added to the top (it has spaghetti straps)

thank you so much MistressT for inspiring me with this post...her dress looks fabulous...even better than the original. I used the bias strip and sewed it directly down without folding it over more, so it is an inch wide strip at the top...looks fab...

I used the 'sew the fabric into a tube and cut off one long strip' method, it worked really well. I have a load more black to use again...I think that you might have created a monster

I take no responsibility for your ensuing monstrosity!  You posted that dress mod?  If so, post the link here, please.  If not, please do and then post the link here.

Way to make it your own!  It would be interesting to see it throughout the year to see how it changes.  If you add stuff, that is.
