get your frills

take:
one pair of pants that fit well at waist but too short on legs
*
add:
some vintage sweet haul fabric, some gathering stitch (top and bottom!), a pinch of jazz and whole lot of fun


i think i must have been subconciously channeling Portabello Pixie - but with less pop - because i promise i haven't visited that site for over a year!

the boy dolls i made over the last week wore me out! i'm so pleased i've got them done (and there are only 2 left!! whaat?!) but am looking forward to chillaxing a bit this week and playing around with a few more reconstructions out of op shop clothes.
also, super, super excited about entering another art competition. last time i got runner up (and a piccie in the paper!! woot)
i have a purely delightful idea, but as always the challenge is trying to actually produce a decent version of the idea. looking forward to painting again though. so excited!
