more cloak



Thanks for all the kind remarks about my shirt.

I've reconsidered the violent approach of scalping it for the best parts. Instead, I'm going to tailor it a bit, shortening the sleeve, and changing out the over-sized snaps.

Then I'll tackle reworking the parts that need maintenance and replacing the ones that just aren't working.  Just one thought if you are thinking of a project like this...make sure the garment fits and is functional before you begin applying the Art. If you love it before you begin, you'll love it even more later on in the project.



Grace, remember these cocktail napkins?

Can you make prints of your favorite parts and sell them?

Deb said...

Minka, I'm thinking I'll do just that after I finish the "facelift" and tailoring.

It's beautiful. And if it doesn't fit, hang it up on the wall, kimono style to look at all the time.
