A Piece Of Cloth



Photo courtesy Gleaners Inc - that's my dress on the left

Tonight was the opening night of A Piece Of Cloth at Gleaners Inc

Unfortunately I couldn't make it to the opening, but thank goodness I was thinking ahead, and had all of my pieces completed before that middle of the night phone call came through.

I didn't get a chance to photograph my dress, so I've borrowed one of Liz's lovely photos (above).



From the very beginning, I wanted to take my piece of cloth, use it as inspiration, design my own fabric, and make a dress for the exhibition.


This was my original mocked up design inspiration for the finished dress.



I couldn't stop at one design.... so I included them all in some cards


To finish it off, I also designed a one-off cushion featuring some of my designs.

I can't wait to actually get over to Brunswick to see it...

I didn't know it was your dress when I first looked at the photo but it caught my eye immediately. Absolutely beautiful as is your pillow as well as the different designs on the cards. Cherrie

Ps - I thought of you when I wrote my IWD post today. I said to mum last week, you're one of the truest friends I've made through blogging.
