vulture dress

it's been a while coming... after a couple of weeks of being 'busy' doing 'study' for 'uni', i returned to the sewing machine to make something for my birthday party.

here you go : the vulture dress.

it ended up being somewhat slapdash - ie. "I HAVE SO MUCH TO DO AND IT DOESN'T FIT ME" but it didn't fall apart, which i suppose is a good sign.
it took an age to cut out the back, and i still didn't get it exactly as i wanted- it tends to gape a little.
fabric is a scanlan & theodore from the fabric store in fitzroy; buttons from clegs; feathers from ebay.

also thankyou to amie (Amourette) for design help, and the amazing shoes
