promised a customer i would post the new colors so she can let her daughters chose the colors they will like the best! so here it is... most are rayon & a little bit of lycra... the stone color (& the blue to its left) are rayon/wool/lycra adding just a nice bit more warmth without too much itch! i was wearing the stone @ Clingman Cafe this am
Just got a really sweet note from Edith Kaan, a linguistics professor @ University of Florida, who came to shop this summer... read more about Edith with a photo of her in her digital dot wrap dress from Pattiy Torno @ CURVE! Thanks for sharing, Edith!
The Origami Skirt is my new skirt for this fall! am loving it! @ $145... 21", 23", 25" & 27" waist sizes in the grey matte jersey & blue or brown heathers slinky jerseys shown below... working on finding some more fabrics that will work with this pattern!
shown with a Cap Tee in the big grey floral @ $60... M & L
and for those of you who have loved the wraps i used to make for Alena to print on... you can now get these versatile rayon/lycra jersey wraps (without the printing) @ $30 each... color selection below! they measure at least 28" x 72" with some longer...
I got a lot of positive feedback from my show @ The Junction this spring... what i heard more than once was the desire to see the work bigger... so my mantra was "go BIG or go home" so I ordered some 4 foot x 4 foot surfaces... little did i know that i was about to get a commission for a 4 foot x 8 foot photo piecing for the lobby of a new building in Davidson, NC. So that work has begun and here is where i am today.... will post progress as it happens... so much fun!!
here is a photo of the finished piece installed in Davidson! only two months later! whew!
Please join me for cocktails on March 21, 2013@ 6pm @ The Junction Restaurant & Bar @ 348 Depot Street in celebration of a new body of photopiecings, from my travels this winter & around the ARAD. (Asheville's River Arts District)... you can see most of the photopiecings images here! thanks... Pattiy
