Wayward Frock Packets
I have some photos to post of packets I've put together to send Jennifer. These are the vintage slips I've had a bear of a time dyeing since they are synthetic fibers and not all labeled so I have to guess what they are and what dyes to use. Paula Burch has been a great help with the dyeing online resource group she monitors but still these slips "just didn't want to straighten up and dye right"!
I have dyed silk fabrics and ribbons, some dyed laces, collected vintage buttons and jewelry pieces to coordinate with the slips and then I send to Jennifer who is working magic in transforming the slips into wearable "wayward frocks".
We plan to debut these at Art Unraveled Vendor day in Phoenix this year where we'll be teaching a hat making workshop too.
I wish I were a better photographer. I'm working on getting a better set up to take pictures but so far this is the best I can do.
