Hey, I'm Art Again Dress


~ moi, as a cutout ~

Actually, the photo was blurry so I had to do something, you know, creative to "make it work."



~ with all its bat wing splendor ~

The dress is made from Vogue 1482 by Rachel Comey.  I tell you, it was such a unique construction and so beautifully explained, illustrated and conceived.  All done with French seams, even the diagonal inserted pocket, using 100% cotton voile.

 

So I'm in the Copy Room at school, courtesy of Liz.  She was a spontaneous provider of the perfect photo props and opportunities.  Thanks Liz.



~ I see London, I see ah, what rhymes with slip? ~



Do note that I had to make a slip for this dress since all my others were too long - or this dress was so much shorter!  You can see many inches of it when I sit down.   But it's so pretty I think I could even wear it on its own.  Black fake charmeuse with lace, made up as I went along.

I love this pin...




~ but check out my new-to-me ebay shoes!!!!! ~


Talk about luv, Trippens, Happy Collection.  And I am.  The ever cool sox are from Soxdreams.com.

And thanks to Sara for photo-ing on the last day of summer school.



I'll be heading on over to the Absolutely Fabulous gals when they go live:  Patti and the Visibles at Not Dead Yet Style, Catherine at I Will Wear What I Like, and Cherie at Shoe and Tell.  See you all then.

  6. Golldarnit Pao!! I have been wanting a pair of Trippens forever, but can't find a pair that is the right size and the right price. If those are a 41 I will wrestle you for them ;)

    Can you send me an email to my hotmail account? I'd like to talk to you about making me a dress like that. I LOVE the shape!!!

    1. Okay, email sent. These are a 38. Trippens seem to run big, I think. There's a great looking pair in your size on ebay now - just a wee bit expensive though.

  7. Ah Trippen. You have made me a stalker. Deeply debating ordering a pair in just the right shade of blue from the factory. Of course I would sell off the others; sadly, all 39s. And flats. No heels for me.

    1. gasp! Trippens straight from the store?! hmmm, 39 eh? I believe that's around my size, you know, depending on the style... But these aren't really heels. It's only an inch difference between front and back. It's more of a platform.

    1. Oh my, do you sew, Rosa?

    2. Just getting back from vacation to read blogs and comments. I don't sew, sadly. I took lessons once and the teacher just about pulled her hair out over my sad attempts at sewing a straight seam. My mom does sew, though. Maybe I can con her into making this dress for me....:D

  11. I love that pin, too. And your sox and your shoes and your dress and of course your slip. I am diggin' all those sepia tones and your little flapper girl bob. French seams are so posh, aren't they?

    1. Did you know in France they call them English seams?

    2. No way! Did you know that in Canada they call Canadian bacon just bacon. I don't know what they call American bacon.
