Working on my wearable art piece: "Shoreline"

I will be using this Folkwear pattern #118, Tibetan Panel Coat, for my shell patterned vest to go over the dress.

The pics below show the muslin panels stamped with rubber stamps and black StazOn ink in shell patterns.

The plan is to make a dress and long vest from seashore type fabrics and add appropriate ornamentation. I am calling the piece "Shoreline ".

Folkwear #107: Afghani Nomad Dress. I had a lot of trouble with sizing, so I remade the bodice once. Luckily it is a loose fitting, unstructured garment, so no matter.

Detail of the bodice. I will add more ornamentation later.

Detail of the bodice back, still awaiting more embellishment.
