August dressups


I'm early this month, its so good when inspiration strikes...

This is August Dress, made from woven sari silks...... aren't the colors delish!!


Ive been seeing a few woven backgrounds around here and here. Jacky's been inspiring me :)

I thought it would be perfect for this. However, it was incredibly fiddly but i do love the end result especially all the frayed fibres and twisty bits.



The dog had another go at my wardrobe after i resurrected it [it had come up pretty good]. I've stuck a pole in there for these shots. I think i need a bigger box too. They aren't all in there as i need to make hanger for Feb's dress and finish Junes.



I love visiting all the other dresses and cant believe how the numbers are growing still...

Fletcher update....

We had a phone call from a lady last night who reckons she and her hubby have seen him in area just out of Castlemaine. They have whippies and said it looked like him. He was running next to a man on a leash along the roadside. The only way he would've survived this long is if he had found a home, its been so cold........ It may not be him but all we can do is try and find out.


Hubby and Luce will be doing a letter drop and knock on a few doors tomorrow. Keep your fingers crossed..... I'll keep you updated...

What an amazing combination of fabrics you used to make this dress. This one is by far the most beautiful I have seen and it is so vibrant and well done. Very original, too. Glad the inspiration hit you, because it is genuinely impressive.

Jacky said...

I think this is my absolute favourite dress... how could it not be with those sumptuous sari silks and that beautiful weaving and embellishing. May have been fiddly, but definately worth the time involved.
So glad I have been able to inspire you my friend.
