Having visited so many fabric stores in the district now, I knew where I could find various fabrics, but I didn't want to get anything in a store where I couldn't find ALL the required components under one roof. Enter FABRICS & FABRICS.
Have you ever heard the poem of the blind men who grope at an elephant, each one trying to figure out how to describe what he is touching? One of them, feeling the side, surmises that it is a large wall. Another, feeling the tail, decides that the object is a rope. Another, after touching the tusk, decided he had encountered a spear. Turns out, I can't effectively explain just what I need the fabric to do until I show them.
|All this tulle? Will it be a tutu?|
This deep poly red? Will it be a shiny red nightie?
|This smooth black fabric? Will it be a tuxedo?|
|Red stitches? Will it be a roadmap?|
|What's under there?|
|Oh... could it be a parachute, perhaps?|
|Or the dream dress of a lovely 16 year old, who loves to watch "Pretty Little Liars"?|
|Just an indication... Not pressed, and the wearer is a different size/proportions than the dress form, but I've been promised pictures after the event! Special shout-out to Mandi Line who designed the original!|
