Wild and Wonderful Wearables

July 16, 2017

it took 3 1/2 years of meetings and planning to organize Treadle Lightly

and it was all over in 5 exhausting days

the fashion show is an event that takes hours of planning and work

I was so entertained I forgot to take pictures of the work being modeled

one of the highlights was this collaborative effort

(click to read)

the 3-year-old – with dad beside him – stole the show

cheers to the men brave enough to appear in front of an auditorium full of (mainly) women

in their underwear

method of hanging allowed people to wander around all the pieces

viewing them from all sides

I regret not having enough time to do the work justice

and not getting the names of the makers

this rag weave vest really caught my eye

it will be great fun to wear

beautiful use of different fibres

my hanten wore a First

 Best use of Multiple Techniques

now, when the temperature cools down, I can enjoy wearing it

couldn’t leave these linen napkins languishing in my favorite consignment store

never used, still with their “Made in Ireland” stickers

so crisp and shiny they are a delight to touch

you can never get enough fibre!

      Kjerstin – hanging the fashion show was just as much a problem as the others – I thought they found a creative solution, it was great to walk around the clothes and see them from all sides.
