This was a tricky challenge when it came to making our own fabric. It’s just not that easy to paint a small scale design on fabric so I went a sort of pop art look. The inspiration for the design was getting to travel to different places around the world with my husband, the silver from all the metallics of India and the purple that we saw everywhere in Amsterdam & Belgium this fall painted in spheres to represent the globe.

I used the fabric in a sixties inspired tunic dress that I’ve paired with a purple sweater coat. The dress has cap sleeves. The top of the dress is seamed down the middle while the skirt section goes around with only a seam in the back. It’s sleek & modern when paired with black leggings & ankle boots. The purple sweater coat has 3/4 length sleeves, a boat neck & a kick pleat in the back.

Handmade 365 2010- My goal is to spend time everyday working on something handmade for a year & photograph it.

    • Both of you totally outdid yourselves this week. Is it scary that I find yours and Susi's "Barbie Fashions" so much more wearable than those of the "real" contestants?

    • I just discovered your sight and you are incredible! Amazing what you can do on this small scale.
