How to Make a Dress Without Sewing!!!

Ever wanted to just take a lovely material such as maybe the sheet off your bed, or your silk curtain from your window and make it into a dress? Well if you answered yes to any part of this question you will be very interested in this video. This 1940's video was a challenge given to Alphonse Berge, also known as "The Great Drapo".

Color With Collars III: A Royal Splash

     What does one think of when one see's Purple and Gold?     ROYALTY of course. These two colors are known all over the  world as the colors symbolizing royalty. Even Whoopi Goldberg and Victor Garber knew that they should put on their royal colors even if they were just "acting" as royalty in the movie Cinderella. 
 This collar is my last and most beloved collar that I've made so far. It is simply beautiful. From the purple satin fabric to the golden chains to the cute little pearl beading's; how much more royal can you get. The square shape in this collar is far from cliche and it makes a statement of its own. It's just pure elegance.

Another reason why I just love this collar is because of it's versatile ability, from it's original rectangular shape to a diamond "graduation piping". It allows the gold and pearl chains to give off a more draped look.
