sorry about the restauration, mistake was picked up by Ed 😎 

just found the first sketch of the dragon after buying it in Miami in May 2011. With a bit of upcycling things do last. 

dragon restoration

My dragon had it’s head chewed off by a puppy ages ago. Finally I got around to restoring it and improving it (I think) with Sugru. With the leftovers I stuck a button to a rubber duck and they all ended up in the pool…

upcycling in pink


another installment of combining a simple shirt/dress from L**l with 2 20 year old mini-dresses. The dress was shortened, pockets added (I don’t know how one can have a dress without pockets?) and the belt discarded. Interesting is the material the dress is made of, called Lyocell made of wood-pulp. I might yet print the dress as well but still have to do some testing on scraps, seeing that I have never used it before.

Bought the dress while my water-lilies were in bloom, so maybe was influenced there.

upcycling for summer

dress 20182

last year I bought a linen dress at Li** white and simple, which I decorated using lino print. I never wore the dress because I really don’t like white clothes and the sleeves were not really what I like. So this year I dyed the whole thing emerald green, added pockets, cut off the sleeves, changed the neckline and did some more printing and now I can wear it.

shorts 2018

2 more shorts from Li** and 2 old trousers and 2 very old miniskirts make together 2 pairs of shorts and two skirt-shorts.
