These pictures always look great on my I-Pad but don't translate to my blog that well.  Just to show I have been plugging along with the background design. 
The circles aren't sewn down yet.... not till all sequinssssssssssssssss are done! 
The gold beads will outline the circles.
Last Thursday I went to the Metropolitan Museum in NYC to see the the exhibit...........
Manus x Machina 
 Fashion in the Age of Technology

I had heard it wasn't great but I think it was amazing!!   Here are a few pictures.

Made with individual hand cut plastic straws!  Also available in black.

Not a great picture  but it was one of my favorites made of feathers.

Made of little rolls of tulle.  Could be titled no sitting!

This is a court presentation ensemble by Boue Soeurs 1928.

Love the detail.

Hand crocheted. 

More feathers.
These are only a few of the many dresses that are on display until September 5th.  If you get a chance its well worth the visit.
I wish I had taken a picture of the Chanel suit made out of plastic... amazing  


  1. Your quilt is going to be a showstopper (well, not going to be - it already is!!). I enjoyed seeing the dresses, especially the crocheted one. Wish I could see the exhibit in person.

  2. Shirlee, those dresses are superb.I'd have loved the exhibition too. Your attention to detail is to be admired.Beautiful work.
    Thanks for commenting on my blog. Thanks

  3. Your quilt is stunning, and those dresses, too.

  4. The museum collection is amazing.
    I wish some of the dress pictures were a little clearer, but I am
    sure that was to be expected with the lighting there.
    Thank you so much for sharing . . .
