Project: Create a line of dresses, Status: sample 1 complete

Since I'm not working in an environment that requires sewing right now, I thought it most necessary to find an outlet for some of my creative unrest. I find that without realizing it, if I'm unproductive and uncreative for any extended period of time; I unwittingly slump into a state of depression, or rather, at least mild agitation. This was quite evident from January to March. Henceforth...the dress project:

Create a full size run of 50's apron inspired dresses complete with pockets, couture stitching details, and unique trims to be sold...somewhere, at some point, for some money.

This is the first one. I painted the fabric myself and I'm keeping it.

For this years spring student art sale at Columbus College of Art & Design, I came up with a few new designs. I'm happy with them and I think this will be a style I continue to make more of and I hope to get selling on Etsy and possibly some other venues...once I get my act together. I'm also working on a line of dresses so stay tuned for new clothing! It feels really good to be productive again.
