ok, at long last here is what I am doing with the beautiful embroidery squares from pakistan. $5 of the sale of each dress goes directly to the women who embroidered these squares. You can read about these women here. This is a project I am super excited about. The dresses will all be a mix of cotton and silk with a different square on each. The above dress in a prototype I worked on today. My favorite thing is the little pocket!
** ok now onto the model issue. Yes this is my son, yes he is wearing a dress. I have no doubt that this will not be the last time. I choose to look at this as a perfect opportunity to craft some amazing photos for him to share later in life.
