Wild dress

Roanoke, Indiana...






I made a dress and I didn’t worry about stiching or the hem or anything like that. I didn’t realize how much fun that could be. My photos were inspired by the movie Where the Wild Things Are. So here’s my messy dress. I hope you like. :D

Material Notes

Cotton Fabric

    Nice! I love your use of subtle colors and the way you incorporate your surroundings into your photography! I wish I had a cool background. Memphis is all suburbs and ugliness.

    I love that it’s so carefree and un-polished. Lovely dress!

    I love that second picture. The light on the dress and the clear sky is so calm. Very nice. I don’t mind the bare feet… although that ground must be COLD!

      Pants = Rubbish.. i.e something is pants it means something is rubbish! Must be a British thing!!

      It would make more sense if you used the word pants for its proper meaning – i.e undergarments rather than trousers… ha ha.. never ceases to amuse me when you guys talk about your pants!! hee hee…
