ellie's revenge

Added Sep 21, 2011

by marcy harrie...

New York, New Yo...






my serger was jealous of my kenny… so she made me make this dress.

the belt section is actually attached; this is all one crazy legged connected concoction that closes with the distressed leather bits. completely made up out of my brain (though ellie would like you to believe she did all the work.)

you can read more about the dress, and the sibling rivalry between my serger and machine over at the sew weekly oona does it!: hurry down doomsday the machines are taking over

    Looks like you were inspired by nature, I like the look of bunched leaves! A little bit like an Amazone! :-) Looks comfy too, . . .

      it’s very comfy. i’m not sure what inspired me… maybe it was the lack of green outside my NYC window :)
