Design sketches for Recycled Clothing
In December I wrote of my experience with the application process for the Ohio Arts Council, and how although my application was not successful, I did get a lot of wonderful feedback and suggestions that have encouraged me and refueled my spirit.
At the actual panel review, I took copious notes and actually sketched a few ideas. I thought I'd share them here, see what you think!
I concentrate on linen fabrics, and when I deconstruct all the thrift shop finds, I've been saving all the labels and buttons in ziplock bags. I wasn't sure why, but I think I'd like to incorporate them into some new pieces.
I also save all the details like cuffs and pockets, again, I'm not sure why, but maybe I was just waiting for the AHA! moment to kick in!
I absolutely cannot wait to start sewing up a new Spring Collection; I'm going to get started!
