They seem to have looked into my brain, because I love everything in that place!
This store is called called Moxie. Unfortunately they are closing their doors after the first of the year to take on other life adventures.... so sad, but I understand. Life goes on! Check out MOXIE !!! At least you can enjoy this wonderful store for a little bit longer!
I teach high school art, and I do a unit on POP, and OP art. This will be perfect for that unit. I have to turn it into some kind of clothing though. It would get very messy as a table cloth, and I don't think my administrators would appreciate my toga wrapping skills.
Here's a little info on a living breathing wonderful OP artist! (Op is short for optical FYI)
Bridget Riley :
Bridget Riley ROCKS!
Look into my eye.........you will learn about OP ART....you WILL learn about OP Art.....
So off I went to find a free dress pattern. I settled on the same one I used for the Green Skully Dress found on www.burdastyle.com. I have a few freebies from both burdastyle, and www.craftsy.com Check 'em out. They are super cool websites for anyone who's crafty, or wants to be. (Maybe they'll see my plug, and give me some royalties) or a free pattern :)
I cut, and pinned, and sewed, and adjusted, and pinned, and sewed,,,,, and I have this so far...
(lovely shot of my make-shift dress form, and basement studio!)
More cutting, and Pinning, and adjusting....
Pin. Sew. Hem.
I sewed on the bottom, and finished it all up!
Can you see me, or am I an OPTICAL ILLUSION!
Perfect for My Op art Unit!
