The Harriet Top

Tada, new shirt. This time I'm showing you a few work in progress pictures as well, unfortunately they uploaded in descending order and I'm in too much of a rush to fix that. So this is all you get today but I'm sure the pictures speak for themselves anyway. I gotta go now, my friends impatiently waiting to get dinner.


Playing a Little Catch Up

I can now show you the sweet fruit of my horrid and exhausting month of October and what Ive been up to so far in November.

Lady Gaga Caution Tape Body Suit.

Doing this was no easy task. I first had to make fabric out of a role of caution tape by sewing together pleats and cutting those up to sew them back together as 5" rotated squares for one side and for the other sewing unpleted strips of caution tape to pleated strips. Then I called my unsuspecting client over and kept her 3 hours where I literally formed the entire thing around her. I cannot explain how I did this, all I know is it was done under the apparently effective cocktail of stress, desperation, exhaustion, and determination. The next day, I put in the zipper and satin lining(without any patters, also dont know how I did that) and she picked it up later that night.


She did her wig and wrapped the caution tape around her head and leg and such and apparently this website(name on the bottom left of the picture) snapped a photo of her. Needless to say she was very happy, and so was I because I stuck it through to the end and I MADE IT BABY!

The very next day I went to the Fun. concert(check em out, their newbies with tasty talent) rather exhausted but happy I had time to enjoy myself.

Also I went out and bought clay, I love sculpting little things. Ive been meaning to do this to make wall ornaments and other things and then I found myself making what is soon to be a necklace.

Its all foresty, mushrooms, logs, squiggly green plant things. I need paints though, its a work in progress.

Then I sold a few Megan Tees I needed to get rid of, I put em on sale. I dont believe Ive showed this before but the first time a customer buys something from me they get a unique cloth shopping bag with my logo on it. Heres two examples.

My model will be coming tomorrow and Ill show it then. I also got the whole work in progress in pictures to show you(drafting, pinning, cutting)

Well thats it, were all caught up to the present now. Check back tomorrow for the shirt : )
