Apocalypse when?

So this lovely garment has been making some rounds on the interwebs. Its part of a larger growing trend of fashionable easy to wear body armour pieces. I expect this is concept only work on this piece, BUT my friends think we should make it.

More pictures here.

Pictures and article from yanko design, garment by Tim Smit.



it's neoprene with kevlar panels.


If this goes down expect details to show up here.

Ruff action

This was made on easter weekend. I got all in a fluster over an article over at coilhouse on ruffs. Both those of the historical and fantastical variety. I decided to make one, and so I did. It's attached to a mini Elizabethan collar/necklace and the ruff part was completely hand sewn.

Totally made me happy.






Oh and as usual it's for sale over at daintythings.etsy.com
