Here goes.........





Ok Ive decided to make a jacket in my own style and a dress out of a pair of floral curtains that I really took a fancy to ......... the pics probably tell their own story ......my original idea was to use Frida Kahlo as my inspiration but I think it's evolving ......I got all the stuff together and I'm just seeing what going to happen ..as usual I don't plan anything I just have a vision in my head and I start chopping and layering ......I started chopping up a fluffy scarf to make the front and back of the jacket and the sparkly bits are from another scarf........
Here's the mad machinist .....there's no stopping me now .....
