a project inspired by the arrival of spring
the little birdies...the blossoms on our cherry tree
...the buds in my garden
I assembled this dress from repurposed fabric and embellishments.
Fabrics and trims have been coffee stained for a vintage look.
Dress is embellished with my favorites...nests, hearts and
Front collage includes needle felted nest with beads,
a heart assembled from a tea bag,
lots of fibers, beads, buttons and fabric layering for an ethereal feel...
"Dreams" was created from hand sewn chenille ribbon
the words "fiber of life" refer to all the tiny bits that go
into weaving a nest...
On the back a fabric collage...
a fresh slate for dreams and possibilities
was more painful than the risk it took to blossom"
