draping on the schneiderpuppe
Moving from one side of the world to the other means that you have to leave MOST of your beloved belongings. For me, departing with my sewing machine and it's accessories, dressmaking doll, fabrics, beads...etc, was frustrating. I have slowly collected enough resources in Berlin to continue to sew and craft about. So when my dressmaking doll arrived I was VERY excited to make a few simple dresses with a draping technique. It's a nice summer dress and was perfect for the FUSION festival. It's a "throw it on and go" dress.
FABRIC: On a trip to Brussels I found this orange floral fabric for a bargain.
