My final Entry to Discarded to Divine: The outfit consistence of a Faux 17th century bolero (complete with cartridge pleated sleeves) over an empire wasted dress with a charmeuse cowl bodice. Both garments are 100% wool and lined in silk. Both garment are also 60% recycled from other clothing.

Preview night at the De Young is April 15th 2011 (For people who want to see the clothes, but not bid) The Actual event, auction and fashion show is April 28, 2011. http://www.svdp-sf.org/DISCARDED/
All Proceeds from the auctions go towards clothing a feeding the homeless/transient population of San Francisco.

Construction/details since my last post...  )
My teacher is going to have all of my classes garments cleaned/pressed/photographed and turned in by the January 10th deadline. After that they will be juried for the silent auction and runway show.
I Really hope my outfit makes it into the fashion show. As a costume-designer it may be the only time I see a non-costume piece go down a runway like this.

A continuation of my last post, this is the (surprisingly long) dress diary of the up-cycled dress I am making for the Discarded to Divine Charity auction as part of a Special Project class I am enrolled in. All of the proceeds of the auction benefit the St Vincent De Paul Society of San Francisco.
http://www.svdp-sf.org/DISCARDED/

How it works: Designers go to the Society head quarters and pick out donated garments they want to up/recycle into new clothing. Completed garments are then turned in to the juries, with most ending up in the silent auction, and a select few in a live runway show. Designers are allowed to use up to 50% new fabric to supplement the garments they pick out (although, when I was there they also had fabric that had been donated you could pick)

I am getting REALLY excited for the new musketeers movie:http://janitesonthejames.blogspot.com/2010/09/more-matthew-macfadyen-images-from.html

Also, I am kind of in love with this dress :http://www.etsy.com/listing/58542147/18th-century-colonial-silk-dress-marie?ref=sr_list_35&ga_search_query=18th+century&ga_search_type=handmade&ga_page=&order=&includes[0]=tags&includes[1]=title

I totally have fabric to make something like that...but I swore an oath to myself practically not to start any new costume projects until I finish all of the things currently taking up about 3 square feet of my apartment.

Also, I tripped and fell onto a sewing project last night, was really surprised that much blood could come from several holes in my foot and hand... then stop abruptly as nothing had ever happened.

...Also, I found three dollars in a bathroom, it has been a weird 24 hours.

I decided to sell off some of the old fabric and costume stuff I have had for a while, and am fairly sure I am not going to use. Smoke-free, animal-free home etc.

Shipping will be determined by item(s) but I will try and keep it low. Paypal proffered, but I will also consider trades!
