Have just said good-bye to another two sculptures. These two have been made from a wedding dress belonging to someone's Aunt. The smaller of the two is for the Aunt's 90th birthday - I hope she likes it.
My lovely surprise while making these two was that at I was pulling the dress apart, some confetti fell out from behind the waistband. Faded, but so special, when you think of all the memories that would have been attached to the dress.
Just a bit sentimental, but using fabric from clothing worn at special occasions or that has special significance, is a fabulous way of creating a really special sculpture. When I first started making fabric sculptures, I had used a Thai silk maternity dress, that I wore when having our son, (who is now 33) to make a geisha.
