DIY couture

I am very vocal about how much I love Alabama Chanin. Natalie Chanin, the founder has based her technique on quilting stitching ( used by her ancestors ) beading and appliques to create one of a kind couture pieces ( the skirts are over $1000 ). Her original pieces were made from recycled t-shirts and Alabama Chanin now shares this technique with us in their book the "Alabama Stitch Book".

Fall '08 for me - coming soon!
