These are a few pics of some pieces I made for a music festival a few years back. For two of these, I picked out some crazy big oversized t-shirts from the thrift store and just started nipping and tucking with the help of my model, whom my husband named, Willow. The white dress was made with a lot of patience and many try-ons. Its the one I'm wearing in our About photo on the RVA blog.
I've seen some beautiful tops at Urban Outfitters and on a few blogs that I'm tempted to replicate but Willow's base was lost in our latest move. I got so used to using Willow's measurements that I stopped trying patterns. Its similar to not wanting to learn to read music. It feels too technical. Someday, technical could take me places. For now, I'm going to stick with doing things the hard way.
Has anyone seen this movie lately? Its just starting at my house.
