Fits Like a Glove, etc. by rainycanary Fits Like a Glove, etc. by rainycanary
Dress made entirely of yellow dish gloves. I draped the pattern, cut it out of muslin and then cut and sewed on millions of pieces of glove onto each piece. There are about 52 pairs of gloves used to make this, and at least 40 hours of sewing.

By far, my most labor intensive piece.


January 2009.

as concept art it's a winner
so is the lovely model
is she you?

that rubber dress, though looking "hot"
must wear rather steamy and uncomfortable.
congrats on the DD, but was it worth forty hours?
