She is the same pattern as #2.
When I reworked the pattern, I made curvy, curvier and curviest. These are curviest.
I am very happy with my new curvier and curviest. Curvy, not so much so you haven’t seen a finished one yet. Two out of three isn’t bad though and after my show next weekend I will get back to work on the design.
This design is a bit “hippier” than the first.
None of these will be available until after my show in Washington DC and I’ve made enough to give myself a good critique.

I have been working on redesigning my lady body pattern for the tattooed ladies. Last week, after I got back from Chicago, I cut out some ladies from my new patterns. On Friday I dyed the fabrics. I sewed over the weekend and am now in the process of finishing some up. Here is my first one finished-

The next event on my schedule is Crafty Bastards in Washington DC. There are lots of terrific vendors and super nice crafty people so it will be a great time! You can get tickets ahead of time here.
I’ve got a lots of new pieces in progress- assorted piles of foxes, tattooed ladies and lumberjacks, all in various states of completion. Hopefully I will have some finished pieces to show in the next few days.
This little fox girl has a dress made from Liberty of London lawn with tall ships!
I think he is pretty snazzy!
See you in Chicago!
I leave for Chicago tomorrow but I’m still working away! After these fellows, I have 3 foxes I’m hoping to finish before I get on the plane.
This is a much redder brown than the other.
The toile is amazing. He has a badger on his chest- at least I think that’s a badger.
And a kitty on his back!
My elephant ear is starting to take over my porch- very encroaching.
Stop by and say hi if you are in Chicago!
I know I’ve mentioned it before. Skin color is tricky. And honestly, I am not that good at dyeing. So when I try something new and it comes out right, it seems like a miracle.
I thought he was done when I took this photo-
But I looked at the photos and looked at the piece and carried him back up to the studio. He spent a few days watching me work and I would glance over every once in a while and ponder. He was not quite complete. But now-
Yes, he need some red suspenders. Because, you know, he did.
His nice brown swirly beard.
Great toile designs on the front and back- genteel folk in their garden.
He has George Washington on his chest and cherubs on his arms.
Also, embroidered suspenders.
