Painted flower dress

This is the dress I made from the painted denim jeans panel.


Alas, some of the detail in the top layers of paint have been lost in the wash, still looks OK though.


Next time I try this I will know to do all the painting in one flat layer, like a picture in a colouring in book.

    Yeah, makes it look “worn” like some of the printed shirts you can buy.

    I guess the washed off paint gives it a kind of “vintage” look.
