And this is totally a project i need to wist!

you are doing excellent work, and should absolutely go on sharing it here for the benefit of all craftsters, since we're here because we appreciate beautiful things.

as to the crafts/design debate, i have a slightly different take on the whole thing. Design is snobby, craft is inclusive. Both can be beautiful, but the design people need an essay to prove it sometimes. Craft is a bit more egalitarian, and doesn't come with a bunch of useless theorizing. Well, I guess it can and sometimes does, but we can ignore those people. They obviously need another craft, what with having enough free time to write the essay in the first place!  Wink

i'm on my way to check out your blog right now!


ps. what is this jellyfish dress that was mentioned? I think i missed something good!

The lining is astonishingly beautiful; I love the varigated reds and I really, really want to touch it. I love the look of the collar and button flap too. There's this nice dichotomy between the very utilitarian look of the outside and the very luxurious look of the inside that I just love. And the reuse of materials makes me love it all the more.
There are a lot of wonderful things on Craftster that just get overlooked- there is a lot on here to digest and some things just slip by. I wouldn't necessarily take a lack of responce personally. Smiley

It's harder to respond effectively to work that's beyond the professional level. When I see something obviously homemade, I can ask about the techniques with some hope of being able to duplicate them myself and getting a similar result. When I see something small and fast looking, again, some hope of duplicating.

When I see something like your gorgeous fabulous to-die-for coat, all that comes to mind is a regret for not having the clothing budget to offer you the $200+ the coat's worth to make one for me.

Well, obviously, the first thought is jaw dropping awe and a feeling that I'd really want to hug someone I saw wearing the coat, but I mean, after that, when I think about posting a response.

Well said!
When I see professional quality items like this one I seldom leave a comment, because I figure: 'what could a clueless one like me say that the maker doesn't already know?'.

That said: this is fantastic, and I could love to see in on a model because I'm fascinated by the shoulder line and want to see how it lands.   Smiley

Ah, that's silly. Anyone can do and make the thing's I'm working on, it just takes time and patience. There's really nothing here except the dying that would be difficult for anyone to replicate, if they happen to have the time.

These are the only real pictures I have on a model, though the shoulder's a bit obscured by the head piece, sorry! I'll try and get better shots of just that sometime. It's almost but not quite a racer back cut.
