June 11, 2011

Reshaping the dress. Trying to make look less sack like. 
Added a belt, cut off the sleeves.  Sewing with red thread, blanket stitches around the sleeve edges.  Taking the dress in along the armpits.

Gearing up for teaching four weeks of Fashion Design Camp.

Got the best compliament via Facebook the otherday.  A woman in New Orleans was having lunch outside talking with a friend about my dresses, when some one from the next table said "Are you talking about Wylie Sofia Garcia, my girlfriend has one of her dresses, we love her art." -  This just made my month.
What a compliament, how humbling and how empowering. Maybe I do know what I am doing after all.
