Man Dress


~ Rebel Stand Tall fabric by Daniel Day ~

I couldn't resist this fabric, the guy is life-size already.  However it's narrow in width, so the challenge was figuring out how to best use it.  


Enter my true love, stage left, er, down.  He gets a kick out of it.  Wanna see?  Sure you do.  Ready?




and he does.

  5. How gorgeous! I'm heading into man dress territory more often these days, although I call them robes. Clothes that African men would wear. I certainly think this would appeal with its graphics and bright colours. I love how you've used the words along the height axis...like he's being measured! So many kinds of wonderful :-) xo Jazzy Jack

    1. It's certainly non-Western clothing. If you think of any other culture/country outside the usual suspects, they all have men wearing robes, tunics, kimono, caftans, etc.

  6. Mr. True-Love is a total hunk in his kaftan! The words are upright but the "stand tall" guys are lying down and taking a load off. Sounds good to me. ;)

  8. Two thumbs up to your True Love - great modelling! There are countries where he could go out of the house wearing this and no one would bat an eyelash. Good choice using the fabric horizontally.

    1. We have a Mosque at the end of our block and I think they might bat an eyelash or two upon seeing this. Kitty corner on the other end of our block is a big ole Catholic church. Who knows what they'd bat.
