  10. the really cunning thing about this dress is that it's essentially a t-shirt + a large cotton long-sleeved shirt...stitched together and embellished....it's the HOW of the stitching, the placement of the short and the reshaping of the neck that has made it so marvellous...no pattern required...

  11. Thanks, India, for showing Audrey's wonderful dress. I'm guessing she reconstructed it in a class with you and dyed it, then embellished. Thanks too, for your description- very inspiring. Claudia
