Last Saturday afternoon I decided I wanted to make a new skirt. I started sketching ideas, but then I realized that skirt looked so lonely, so I made an imaginary friend to wear the skirt. Her name is Kira. I named her after the girl in Xanadu... yes I watched that for the first time last night. Wow. Let's have a quick one word association about Xanadu: neon. Don't you just love the 80's? Thanks for lending me the dvd Lisa.
Two things you should know about Kira: One, she is very confident in her nakedness and two, she has great hair.
The once lonely skirt united with Kira and felt so much happier.
But then the skirt got a little jealous because some competition showed up...
Wouldn't this dress be awesome? I don't know if I have the seamstress skills to pull this off. Anyone want to make it for me?
Let's just say... got a little carried away into my la-la land, which is kind of like la-la land/muse world that lies behind the graffiti wall in Xanadu, but there's just a lot less neon.
(Pssst. I just used vellum to overlay these drawings. Have you tried making clothes designs before? How do you do it?)
