Here is the work apron I finished this weekend. I made it from some vintage pieces and the bottom of an orange dress I bought at the rummage "bag" sale just for the beaded buttons. The only thing is I wish my waistline was still like this dress form which was mine during college. Well.. maybe someday again if I can lay off the cookies!
This is a shot of one wall of my studio with a small (very small) sampling of fabric that I keep in view for inspiration. Above is my version of pirate's treasure... an old suitcase filled with vintage trims, ribbons, laces and millinery flowers. It's like gold!
