Earth Day 2014

Our annual earth day  “100% Fashion, 100% Nature” Project is something I look forward to each year. This is our third year shooting the project, and my third year creating a dress from only “bush” materials.

Here’s the details of this year’s piece…

Inspiration : Nature Hike with my little brother (April 2014)

Materials : Bukut seeds, Fungi, and Coconut Tree Mesh.

Method : Coconut tree mesh was cut, stitched together (like fabric), and assembled into a simple A-line dress. The Fungi was stitched to the waistline and skirt of the coconut mesh garment. The neckline was adorned with Bukut Seed “Jewels”, carefully stitched on (the seeds are soft and candy-like)

This morning I put on my most comfortable PJ’s and sat down at my kitchen table with a pile of watercolor papers — all torn down the middle into half-page strips, a pencil I sharpened with a pink pocket knife, an old plastic pen (currently the only black-inked pen in my jar that has not been completely used up and dried out), and a large cup of herb & lemon water.

Perfect.

As my pencil tip touched down on my first piece of paper, I felt inspired, excited, and ready to get my ideas onto paper. This, my friends, was the energy I had been waiting for all week.

Then my front door blew open and flew my stack of paper strips across the table and towards me, knocking over my cup, and flinging papers and herbal lemon water all over my lap.


A beautiful start to a beautiful day of sketching.

Different outfit,  new freshly-torn watercolor paper strips, lost pen, new pencil (pencil’s don’t blow away in the wind. Why is my pencil gone?)

And screw herbal lemon water — I have coffee now.

This is a sketching day, and it will remain so.

Today, I choose to grasp by the handle.

This weekend, I tried my hand at something a little different.

This is my very first piece of Bridal Lingerie for one of my lovely spring brides – to accompany her graceful, Lace and Silk chiffon bridal gown.
