Coochie-coo, happy Friday to you !

One of the things I love so much about illustrating is that I can fashion up whatever I feel like in an ink and watercoloured world where pigment is currency and magic is an hourglass or two away.

While this concoction was tickling itself onto the paper, inspired by a real life gown and strategic placement of poetically licensed ruffles, I wondered if I might offer you a No Sew DIY Haute Couture Tutorial involving a 600 thread count Egyptian cotton sateen bedsheet, three metres of tulle, hemming tape and a smoking hot glue gun. But a packet of Turkish fairy floss caught my eye and that was the end of that.

If you're up for some fun, let's give the construction a whirl while we sip muddled-cherry-infused bootleg and play Pass the Pretty Kitty.  Our fluffy fabric confection's lack of thread saves both a stitch in time and nine.  By my mental arithmetic, that means we'd make it to dessert with dinner to spare.  And on that note ...

Happy Fashionable Friday to you !


  1. Half of my hems are held up with tape of some sort already, so I'm an expert at thread-free couture. Your cunning confection is perfect for masking the aftereffects of immoderate macaron consumption—and provides the ideal scratching pad cum napping spot for Puss. Perfect!

    1. I couldn't have said it better, dear Alexa !! Joyeuses pâques ~ bisous.

  2. When we all go to Paris together, I will need some dresses like this so I can indulge in macarons and Veuve Cliquot!

    1. We can have a No-Sewing Bee especially for you, Petrea !!


Merci, grazie, thank you for joining our conversation lounge. Your smile lights up the room. Even more beautifully than our crystal chandelier. x
