original rugs and wall hangings combining hooking and braiding

Fashions with Flair

This is a dress I made for Brattleboro Area Hospice's first Wild Night on the Catwalk fashion show. We had to use at least one item from one of our 2 thrift stores. I used a dark blue purple jacket, which I cut into many pieces then appliqued the pieces onto silk panels which I had dyed. The bodice was braided in silk and wool. The "jewels" were from a play my husband Stewart was in many years ago. The model is Toni Baldi-a lovely woman inside and out!

Toni Baldi on the Catwalk Nov. 19, 2011. Her hair was braided into this creative style and her make up was a continuous vine that started at her feet and went to her face, embellished with jewels-very fanciful and fun.
