How Long to Make a Dress?

(Dress: cotton/lycra, elastic, 2011) 
Dropped waist dress with butterfly sleeves and soft gathers at the neckline. Experimented with a sleeveless version. Then added a sample sleeve. Refined the sleeve pattern. The second iteration became the final version. 

Beneath the hem a border--the extended underskirt. In lieu of a belt a length of cloth wrapped at the hip, and a draped handmade necklace with rose and green ersatz pearls.


Making dish towels. Simple and wonderful. These are linen and when wet smell like grass.
(Necklace, butterfly sleeves, gathered neckline)
