Flash and Trash - Part XXIV
It is done and photographed! First, front and back:
Now for the fun shots:
My son did the photography for this one and he's getting better. The children have been doing this for about four years or so, and it is much easier because they know what mom wants!
As you can probably tell, those cups are a bit big. They're meant to be that way! The reason they're large is that part of Cathy Frank's runway act at quilt shows is to wear a lime green bra over her regular clothes and then pull out fat quarters and spools of thread as give away prizes to throw into the audience. So, I've copied the idea.
Overall, I'm really pleased with the outfit. It is certainly not meant to be worn every day and it is a bit costumey, but it captures exactly the fun and exuberant spirit of the woman who inspired it. She will get the outfit mailed to her eventually, she's already seen it and loved it. It was fun to make and even with the little bit of trouble of the dye color the hook and eye closure it really was one of my easier projects!
Parting Shot: In the Sun. Pix is enjoying the sunshine taking up one whole window sill for herself. Oh to be a cat!
