An experiment in cathedral window quilting in heavy wools led to the bodice. The skirt is done in needlelace techniques, though with much thicker thread. More in-progress shots are on my blog.







Hopefully once I am back in school I can get some shots on a real person!

It's not for me.

And I worked on it over a period of two months, I'd guess about 25-30 hours.

Stop being so damned positive. Staring at the sun only blinds some one. By only looking at the positive, you miss an entire beautiful world of shadows and colors. Don't be overly negative, be realistic. The world is so much more complex and beautiful that way.
