My participation in the Dress-up challenge has been spotty this summer, and I am determined to "Get back on Track"!
Here is my submission for the June, yes... I know...the June Dress Up Challenge whose theme was Asian Inspired artwork. Since I make it a habit of not looking at the other participant's submissions until AFTER I complete my piece, and it has been such a long time since June, I remembered the challenge as "Japanese Inspired".
With that in mind, and since I was in an obsessed jag of making dress compositions on record albums, I researched origami dress shapes and created this school girl's uniform layered on japanese prints and an actual mini Japanese parasol from an old mobile. (Have I mentioned that I never throw anything away?!)
Here are some of the other pieces I made during the same long session...
Have a great Labor Day Weekend, and be sure to take a look at all the other June Submissions at Sew Loquacious
Note: Beginning in September, MacKomics Studio will be hosting the 2011 Dress Up Challenge while Angela of Sew Loquacious recovers from knee surgery. See this post for September's challenge and check back often to see all the "Anything Goes" submissions.
