Makeshift Project

Tonight I've been poking at the archives of this blog. The author is at the tail end of a year-long project where she makes everything she wears, including footwear and so on.

I'm fascinated, both by the concept and by her style. I haven't had a very coherent idea of what I want to look like recently, and this sort of speaks to that part of my brain. Possibly when I get back from Burning Man I will pack up half my wardrobe and concentrate on embellishing/modifying/remaking the remaining items.

Finished vest pics

A while ago I posted progress pics of a vest I was making for Tom. Here is the finished vest:



It's off at Burning Man now (I'll join on Sunday). It'll probably get more decoration over time, whenever I get around to it.

Holding out with the natural hair color...hasn't lasted. But it's long enough now that most of my reasons for not dyeing it are gone. We'll see if I cave and do the rest.

This is what the sequins were for.

Peter, the night before his wedding. The dress is what the sequins from the last post were for. I will never stop finding stray sequins in my carpet. Never.
