i hate tags in my clothing, and am always having my husband cut them out. they are itchy. especially on my fair and sensitive skin (he sarcastically calls me a delicate flower). after removal, i kept feeling badly about just pitching them in the trash. so i got this idea that i would simply save them to make into a dress. it seemed like a funny idea, take the part i hate, and re-use it to make something else. what i didn't foresee is that many of the clothing companies started silk-screening the labels right in! good for my skin, bad for my dress. so i started telling everyone to save the tags for me. and people did for a while. and then the jar of tags in my studio sat for a while, gaining only a few tags here and there.
yesterday i was in the studio and saw that jar. and i said to myself, it's now or never. i am sick of looking at that jar of tags!! so i spent all day making my dress. now, i hate to be the bearer of bad news, but it looks pretty definite that i will never be actually wearing my dress. unfortunately the amount of tags only merited a baby dress. it's sized for a one year old. it was either a tiny dress, or none at all.
so here is a sneak peak. it took ALL DAY and i'm not even close to being finished. but when i am, i will post the entire garment right here. so stay tuned!!
