Los Angeles, Cal...
Made from bamboo-print thrifted curtains (just like Maria in Sound of Music), but with added leaping cats stamped on (inspired by The House of Flying Daggers). I used Tanit-Isis’ birthday dress pattern, with a couple of modifications. This was an excellent introduction to shirring and I love how loose and comfy this dress is.
100% cotton curtains, elastic thread, hand-carved lino block and Tulip brand fabric paint.
