ILLUSION Dress Shirt (Take 2)

ILLUSION Dress Shirt (Take 2).

I’m still on pace for a garment a week on average so far this summer, while still having time to play lots of tennis. I won’t post most here so as not to hog the blog, still wishing more members would email me their garments pictures and writing details to post, or just other content to post. However, I will post the occasional garment I make that I really want to share and not wait till the fall. Hope everyone is having a wonderful summer!

Exhausted Labour Labels Show Up in Discount Clothing in Primark Stores

Contribution from Kathleen

On the topics of unethical labour towards the creation of clothing, some may have read Overdressed: The Shockingly High Cost of Cheap Fashion.

Recently, some clothing items in the discount store Primark have turned up in Wales with labels sewn in reading “Forced to work exhausting hours”. (story here)

Certainly is eye opening to be more aware of from where your bought clothes come, by whom they are made, how and under what conditions, no matter what the motive is behind the labels.

Join “Little Dresses For Africa” for the “Sending Hope Conference”

Asked to be shared by Janet M, from Nancy Zieman’s blog (see link below). Little Dresses for Africa is something some of our members do. This is a more united and concerted effort.

Little Dresses for Africa is an amazing organization with an equally fascinating story. The brainchild of Rachel O’Neill, Little Dresses for Africa, is a nonprofit 501c3 Christian organization, which provides relief to children of Africa. Simple dresses are made out of pillowcases and distributed through the orphanages, churches, and schools in Africa to plant in the hearts of little girls that they are worthy! Reaching the milestone of providing TWO MILLION dresses to little girls, Rachel and other volunteers are organizing the first annual Sending Hope Conference August 8–9, 2014 in Shipshewana, IN. I’ll be joining the Little Dresses for Africa team for this special conference. –

Welcome to Level 2 of my design skills, folks… symbolism in design!

You know how they say love is blind? See what I did with it on a sexy “suggestive” dress shirt. ;-)
