My Torn Dress by Sally Louise Paine (me!)
This is a quick dress I made for one of my Art Foundation projects, based on the word 'Torn' and the letter 'T', using inspiration from different types of tears in fashion - for example 70's punk ripped tops & the more recent trend of raw edges. I have used a method called gold card printing & a press to create the 'T' print at the hem of the contoured cotton dress. I have also used chiffon to create a loose fitting long dress underneath. The hems and edges have all been left raw to reflect the word. I have also used welding and pliers to join & bend a metal 'T' link chain at the back of the dress. So I hope you like my dress & photography, and let me know what you all think . . .
