Scenic Route

Flounces at the cuffs & neckline, Dress, 2013

The scenic route to the studio doesn't pass by a babbling brook or offer mountain views but there is a corrugated metal wall with fantastic dark persimmon streaks of rust. 

It was a windy and cooler day last month when this photograph was taken. Underneath the dress is a slip. A student in a sewing class bemoaned the lack of good slips available for purchase. Although a slip can be made in a more complicated manner, here is a simple strapless slip in cotton jersey.
