This post is a quickie before the wedding bells ring! In 10 days my mad wedding sewothon will end, and this sweatshop-in-the-attic returns to being an atelier. And I can show the wedding collection 2016:
- bride : the 4 prototypes leading to the final dress, which sewing I outsourced!
- bridesmaid: a lined bamboo/cotton dress with meters of tulle, and meters of invisible hand-stitching with nylon thread (and a back-up cotton dress)
- ring-bearer: a formal, lined 2-piece suit (made of 65 teeny tiny pieces of fabric)
anyway back to the pre nuptial quickie:
for my daughter’s end of year performance everyone needs a robot-look every now and then, right?
I usually hand paint, but found stamping various objects on the T-shirt far better for the industrial look . Her robot name is: m2i2, if you squint you can read Maia 🙂
