Description

I wanted to experiment textile printing/painting,and shiring,so I decided to make an experiment-dress for myself.Then I figgured my sister-in-law is pregnant and I could experiment on her,and make her a maternity dress:).
I used the bust contour pattern from Miasu,it’s brilliant,I plan on using it very often.

Since i dind’t knew exactly what to print on a maternity dress( I had some smile face on her belly,or a toy car running over her belly,but I thought those waren’t very good ideas:)).And then I made 3 textile roses that I painted and gave them dept,and texture with the contrast of the colours.

And the shiring went great! I expected to fail on that ,but I didn’t:).

Tell me what do you think of the experiment-dress:)
