  1. Kiss my belly doesn’t have the same ring to it. 😂 On a more serious note…… I reckon you’ve showcased Klimt in a brilliant echo of Emilie’s dress style. I love your work.

  2. This shape really looks good on you DF. And I love the Emilie photograph and her diminutive artist in a dress. I saw these panels from other famous artists but was afraid to tread. Well done.

  3. Glorious dress. I haven’t got the bottle just yet for these panels but am thinking the Tree of Life panel would make a lovely tunic for me. You are always inspiring even though you scare the shit our of me with some of your more daring creations because I am a bit of a shy rabbit.

    1. SO satisfying to make something [almost] zero waste. I think I shaved off the top selvedge and about an inch of the print, to get the length right. It’s so fun, can’t wait to see how my new pupils respond lol

  4. Truly amazing. Funny how you can email back and forth with a person and feel like you know them…especially how they look. But when you seen them, they aren’t at all like you pictured them to be. Not like any math lecturer I ever met. Great style! MaryJane in the Mts. of WNC.

    1. lol thanks! I’m terrible at matching up real names, with usernames from different fora though, so regularly get quite startled when I finally join the dots! I’m now trying to make myself an Edwardian dress inspired by Lincoln Cathedral…in three days. Wish me luck!

  5. Kismet? You and I must be buying the same things; I picked these up on Fabric.com a couple of months ago (never saw them in the stores EVER) and am pondering how to make them work. I did buy some of the coordinating reddish gold check, but it doesn’t actually coordinate that well. And there’s the ‘i’m small and these panels are awkward’ so I set the whole pile aside to age in the stash. And here you are wearing them and this looks smashing. I have that photo of Klimt & Emilie Floge somewhere on the hard drive; maybe I go with what they are wearing and let the panels fall where they may…..

    1. There you go! We’re all family eh? Maybe delibvaerately setting the panels asymmetrically, paired with a plain black , gold or that delicious green? They are very narrow, but maybe with one edge sitting just off centre, extending away from middle fore and aft, you could get a cool caftan out of them? I couldn’t bear to cut into the length, even trimming off an inch of black border made me wince lol

  6. It never occurred to me that the models looked exactly like the paintings right up to the hair, but she does! Great dress, and the plain bodice is a good idea. I did a large needlepoint of that back painting and still have it. I bought the kit in Germany in 1984 or so and fortunately finished it way back when when I still had the oomph for that sort of thing.
