Well here is the newest addition to the Dress Project!!!
She was delivered yesterday to the ALL Gallery in Lowell to be part of the Fabrication of Imagination Fiber Invitational show. I am truly ecstatic with the way she turned out, yet I am also sad not to be working on her anymore. I loved the meditation of weaving the fabric strips into the bottom and thoroughly loved creating the top!! The top is not what i had planned but I am really pleased with the way that it turned out – a homage to crazy quilts. I covered the top with an old velvet curtain that a friend gave me and then appliquéd and embroidered all over it. I could have gone on for days and days however the dress needed to be delivered yesterday. I did take advantage of all the time I had – thanks to my buddy, David Lang, I was able to sew up to the last minute. David offered to drive me so I could sew. It was also a good thing because I was VERY tired – I had not slept much for the few days leading up to the delivery date. Now the only thing is I need to decide on a title. I just need to get a little more sleep.
