the recycouture Mourning Dresses are resting before they go into the "Species on the Verge of Extinction" chapter of the fashionRIP Project installation. (http://fashionrip.blogspot.com)
The original opening gallery didn't get their grant so ideas for an alt location are welcome! Please send!
The water lillie dress is the first in the "Water Rip" chapter. The sleazy poly top was cut in 2 to minimize discomfort and because the print was fabulous for a watery start. The skirt uses the hem area of the top to case the elastic with a ready made solution. The appliques are pulled apart silk flowers with beaded centers and the bottom of the skirt was an old drapery sample. The tulle is new though....

Kudos on the new look for this site and happy stitching!
