Artful clothing

Since discovering how to deconstruct and reconstruct clothing, I've created about a dozen pairs of jeans. Some for my daughters, others for friends. The process is lovely. I sit down with my machine and look through my fabrics as well as vintage pieces, then I kind of go crazy. I don't plan ahead too far, it takes away from the design (once I tried to plan out an entire pair of jeans, and the result was awful!).

Each skirt or pair of jeans takes at least fifteen hours. The jeans I did for my daughters last Christmas took forty plus hours each.
