🔥Paris heart on fire !💙

Hi folks ! I think that Colin’s work has more of memory and feeling instead of details, for that reason this is into our soul.

I had never heard from bells such a wonderful combination of notes as that from the belfries of Notre-Dame, and for that reason, this night I feel blue.

Thanks for your visits !

Nixie Briefs

🌱🐰🐰🌱 HI SISTERS! LET’S GIVE A FUNNY TOUCH WITH THIS STYLISH AND GENUINE PRINTS FOR KNICKERS.THANK YOU JENNIFER.

Thimble & Threads

I got the pattern for the Nixie Briefs from Jennifer Lauren Handmade back in April but it wasn’t until last weekend that I sewed my first pair. I figured that all my jersey scraps would make an excellent underwear collection.

I’m in-between size 10 and 12 and wasn’t sure which would be a better fit. So last weekend, using the leftover yellow/cream stripe organic interlock I used a few years ago for a top, I made a size 12 (accurate for my waist measurements, but big for my hip measurements). They looked great but after a day of wear felt a tad too loose for comfort. Then mid week, with this fantastic acorn print I made my BFF a top out of, I tried the size 10 and it feels much less precarious.

So this weekend I set out to use up all my scraps (perhaps that was over ambitious)…

More Paste Papers

💮🔘💠WELL BEAUTIES, IT DOESN’T MATTER: PAPERS, CANVAS OR CLOTHES ALL THESE STUFF ARE READY FOR GOOD ABSTRACT MOTIFS. MANY THANKS TO WENDY.

THREADBORNE

January and February have passed with me learning about paste papers. I am really quite interested in the varied applications of this genre – historical, contemporary, practical and just plain fun to do! I came upon paste papers as a medium because I have temporarily had to give up the exacting work of cutting and folding papers for bookarts. I was looking for a way to work on my art while suffering severe bursitis (threat of frozen shoulder) with muscle impingement in my Sword, Pen, Needle and Brush etc. arm…only a range of motion of about 12″ across my work bench and no cutting of paper…oy.  So welcome paste papers. (I think it might become an addiction, dear Reader…you should see my stash…)

I reported last month on various experimental papers I  made using corn starch paste and methyl cellulose paste as paint carriers. This month I was also into…

More on Dior

✏📋✂ WELL DEARS! AND NOW WESTERN CLOTHES. REMEMBER: BEFORE A BEAUTIFUL STYLE, THERE IS A BETTER SKETCH. AND BEFORE SCISSORS THERE IS A GENUINE PENCIL

fiftydresses

In re-reading my last two reviews of the Dior in Denver Exhibit, I realize how very little I was able to include, when there was so much to see and learn.  Well, these reviews cannot go on forever, but there are a few other aspects and components of the Exhibit that I still want to share.

In one of the narrower passageways between Exhibit “rooms,” there was a display of Dior scarves lining each side.  From the Dior Heritage Collection in Paris, these printed silk twill scarves were designed by Alexandre Sache between about 1958-1976.

The very bright graphic ones were so eye-catching:

And this engaging one with its impressionistic rose in the center was my favorite, I think:

You may have noticed in my first two reviews how many of the fashions, especially the early ones, were made in black.  Dior considered black “the most elegant of all colors.”  While…

Mali Fashion

🌍 HELLO BEAUTIES! EACH AFRICAN DRESS CAN HAVE A GENUINE ABSTRACT DESIGN LIKE A TRUE ARTWORK. CHEERS! 💚💙

sl4lifestyle - Sabines Magazin für Reisen, Lifestyle und mehr

When I am new in a country I like to get into the fashion scene. Mostly I find it in artist markets or boutiques. Mali is famous for tie-dyed textiles and unique colors and prints used in its garments. The culture is lively, and that is reflected in the garments you see throughout the entire nation, no matter which region you are in. Often I saw much of the traditional dress that the Malian people pride themselves on.

Silk skirts, tunics and long dresses are popular choices for Mali women, particularly the pagne, which is a wraparound skirt. Traditionally, women also wear turbans that match their dresses. The boubou, which is a full-length tunic, is a traditional men’s garment.

Vibrant color belongs to the Mali wardrobe, and dressing up in costumes, jewelry and earrings is a popular activity. Colors used for clothing are typically from entirely natural dyes, which allows…
