laying dress patterns on checkered fabric

stamping free hand cut shapes on the dress

 

This red checked fabric was a last minute found from a thrift store for 2€ and after this pic I knew what to do out of it. Pattern for the dress is again from 90s fashion magazine Burda with some slight alternations. The dress turned out to be too easy and “nice” so I cut out some free hand patterns and stamped them on.

It was supposed to be tough looking chick wearing a checked punk inspired dress with dr. Martens shoes…but it turned out to be slightly nicer version of that. When you want the picture to be taken full torso and you wearing the dress it is hard if you have to do it by yourself—-but hey let´s use a selfie stick—which is not as easy as I thought it would be…photoshoot took place in the botanical garden of Delft.

This denim bag is the first one I did in really big size from second hand jeans. Bottom part is round to give the bag kind of a “hiking” feeling…like a sleeping bag. Lining is made out of checkered linen fabric, pretty white and red checks. Handles are removable so it is also possible to change the look of the bag…maybe a pair of nice looking belts to carry the bag from?
