I tried to make sure there was a nice mix of formal and everyday, new and old, futuristic and old fashioned. Let me know what you think.
Blue silk 'peacock' dress. The dress is blue silk satin, the brocade is a peacock feather print bought at a shop in Chinatown. I use it again in a teal top as well.
Teal silk blouse with peakcock brocade trim.
Silk twill gray skirt.
Worn with modified tees. I dyed this one blue (it was pink) and added a freezer paper stencil. Then, I painted some more with freezer paper backing. The rest were done the same way.
I added a circular flower to it, later:
Owl top, with circular knit skirt made of medium grey cotton jersey:
Black brocade with a self fabric belt from a 1950's pattern. Wore this to the theater with a purple scarf I dyed.
Purply pink formal, cut down from a larger, longer dress.
Green Oriental print top, worn with silk twill skirt.
Teal and forest green wool knit top ('Bad Penny' on Knitty, modified) with lace pattern at the end. The skirt is a forest green wool with dark purple lining.
Another 'Bad Penny' made of dark grey cotton, worn with silk purple print skirt with ruffle. The flower pin is made of the print plus the lining.That 'Raised Floor' ad is the bane of my existence.
It has interrupted me 6 times while writing this. No, 7!
Anyway- Please let me know what you think!
