Me dosed up and upright to collect my prize......
Eileen won the overall prize with her amazing paper dress ......she had the extra honour of being asked by Wayne Hemmingway (Red or dead) to exhibit her dress in his vintage museum on the South bank
Eira won the prize and bursary for the most wearable outfit...Eira paints exquisite patterns on fabric and if you enlarge the photos you can see her amazing peacock feather boots........
Well Saturday was the culmination of the Enliven Project......Models were dressed, nerves were jangling, painkillers were taken, questions were rehearsed and we were ready for the fashion show catwalk. It went smoothly and without a hitch. The outfits were fantastic and everyone was buzzing with excitement......and as we found out there were three prizes ......and Yay I was lucky enough to win one for the category of the most re-worked piece ...I won a bursary of £150 to continue my work .....I was delighted

This bag started life as two knitted scarves, a curtain lining, a tattered chiffon scarf and a load of ties ......the inside lining of the bag is the curtain fabric I have used on the dress and for the cuffs and collar of the jacket ........I first cut the pattern for the bag out of the curtain lining and chopped up the knitted scarves added pieces of the gold scarf I used for the jacket I covered it with a chiffon scarf and machine stitched it all together .....I then decorated with applique flowers from the curtains and bits from the souvenir scarves....just make some more tie roses to finish it off ....and there you have it ......
