Here's my latest dress design and prototype. The original art is a collage I created digitally. The dress is made of "4-way stretch" Lycra, just like exercise leggings - so it's super comfortable and packs like a dream. No zippers, just slip it on. If you wear this, heads will turn! I wore it to Art Market SF and Renegade Crafts Fair over the weekend, and it made people smile. The bit of fabric that was left over from making this dress (which I made from a single yard of digitally-printed fabric) I then made into a rag doll (see blog entry below). Model: Katherine Shedrick ©2016 SRKirshenbaum
