      Thank you, I’m glad you find my work inspiring. You should try, it’s great to wear something that you’re 100% sure nobody else will (or can, hehe) .

    Wow, such an eye catcher! I’m painting too, but now sewing and boyfriend has taken all my free time, so I’ve neglected it. BUT seeing your amazing dress I’m inspired to make some combination of sewing and painting :-)

    Woah, your painting and sewing skills are incredible! Painting on jersey is really difficult- the fabric stretches and distorts the graphic with every little brushstroke. Yours is perfection! So cool and quirky.

      Thnx, you` re right. Jersey is the most difficult to paint on. I wanted it to look like a graphic print so it took me two days to finish the drawing… :))

    You did an amazing job with the hand-painting! What type of paint did you use on the fabric?

    I’m really interested in trying this myself. Thanks!

    I tried to make this dress out the BS mag. I have it all cut out and half sewn, but when I tried to connect the front upper and lower pieces, I had a TON of poufy, droopy fabric at the curved sections. It looked like my boobs were waist-level! I tried re-gathering, taking out fullness, and several other things before giving up. It’s now hiding in a ball under my sewing table. Did you have any problems getting it to go together?

    I am in love with your owl! Your painting on this dress is wonderful. The dress itself fits you very nicely indeed and the black piping balances the painting nicely.
