Photo Tunic Dress

     I have been teaching beginning digital photography for a couple of years now. We are learning about macro (close-up) photography. I have also found a great website that can turn any digital photo or drawing into fabric! (I have talked about www.spoonflower.com before) I combined those two loves, and bought one yard of fabric with a photo taken by yours truly!!! Check it out HERE!

     I was ecstatic to get the fabric, and I couldn't wait to get started! I created this dress the same way I made the Mona Lisa dress.




My photo is of some oil pastels in a bowl in my classroom.
I traced a free t-shirt pattern I found online, and I just extended the length as far as the one yard would let me.
I used light blue thread on the sleeves. I like the way contrasting thread colors look.

I used my seam gauge for the sleeves and neckline to make sure I was
 getting everything even-Steven.


And there you have it! 




O.K. it's 7:15 a.m. and I'm ready for the day.
I'm waiting for students to arrive.
Macro photography here we come!!


Still waiting....


I had fun with my camera remote. Can you tell?




See you next time!
