DV Design & Photography

Do you know how happy it made me to find out that Dustin, who not only is a photographer and graphic designer, also makes jewelry from vintage and found parts!? An all-around artist!

He made the necklace here with the eyeglasses, and they match the dress so perfectly!!

KLT !

I am so appreciative of the creative designers and artists I've met through courtneycourtney!

As you probably know, I resew and repurpose used and unwanted clothing and fabrics into dresses and other items. I upcycle.
Another source of fabric has been OOPS prints and unsellable shirts.
Misprints, or irregularities in fabrics happen quite often!

You may already know of KLT:works. And her work is also a Cool Mom Picks pick! ( I LOVE CMP! )
I just got a fun batch of oops prints and couldn't wait to sew them up!



These and more coming soon to the emails!! http://eepurl.com/cgS2P

Make sure to check out what else is in store in the KLTworks etsy store!

Thank you Kristin!!!

2 years later : one-shoulder flutter

I totally forgot about this one-shoulder flutter sleeve style I designed
in June 2009!

Until today when Angie from Treasures for Tots shared these photos!
The dress fits nicely on top now, two years later :)
It could be a little longer in length, isn't it darling!
