My Crazy Crustaceany Crab Creation

I made this crab dress JUST in time to enter it into the Colette Laurel pattern contest. It was a race against the clock! My own little project runway contest... but I had to stop half way, and go to work:( BUT I finished it just in time!


THE CRABBY CRUSTACEAN PRINT
The night before the competition ended I created this crab print which was inspired by the lobster dress from the 30's. 


VOTE here at Coletterie if you love my quirky crustacean creation:) and take a look at all of the lovely Creators sewing up a storm!

This Schiaparelli & Dali collaboration  inspired me to create my crabby crustacean print.

This Les Heal lobster dress is awesome! Perhaps it can be the next source of inspiration:)

  1. I love it! I have a crab mask that I bought in Japan. A crab dress would be far more practical.

    1. the dress reminds me of the crabs you see when you go kayaking in Freo port. When you get close to the rocks the crabs scurry away. so CUTE!

  6. Already voted you my favourite! Eyepopping colour and a great print! And that was before I saw your awesome inspiration. I love how the model is doing a crustasean pose herself. Good luck!
