The other day, I was on a roll and made all these little dresses in one day. Getting close to being ready to have my booth at the Vintage Fair.
As we go through life we invest time and energy into different things and some of them work and/or you just enjoy them and others hopefully can be a bit profitable. When I first retired after teaching for eight years for The Art Institute I painted furiously, and joined a cooperative art gallery. I sold a few pieces and actually sold another this week; but found I was giving more to local auctions than actually selling. Hummm…. What next?
Wrote a Slug Wars book, self-printed and took to several shops. It sells a little and people seem to like it. I went to class to learn how to collage on boxes, made a few and sold several of my Paris design, but still wasn’t satisfied.
Started sewing for my beautiful granddaughter Claire and I think after forty years of not sewing I might have found my new passion. I love putting together fabric for little girls dresses and will see where this adventure takes me. The artist in me loves seeing what different combinations I can put together. The ones featured here are fun everyday dresses made quickly with T-shirts and a yard of fabric.
