Art Lady, Yours is certainly a fair assumption. Fiber Art is as good a name as any and I'm sure the artist was sincere in her approach and "ravelation" of a new form.

I'm sure she's making a whole lot more money with her art than I.

Forgive me when I say this dress could only be for another "lady" - Lady Gaga . . . and
I think I know where the designer got her inspiration. I'm trying to send a pic that illustrates my opinion. I suppose it may not work, looks like it's not - look up Komondor. It's a breed of dog that has a coat like dred locks. It really reminds me of this dress. If somebody can get a good picture, by all means post it then any one is free to debunk my opinion.

I think I can pm a pic to you. I'll try. Jean


I suppose much worse has been done in the name of fashion.
Jean

Jeanie, I can't believe you wouldn't do a search for a breed of dog called a Komondor! I can't seem to post pictures . . . so sue me.
If you get a really good picture of a white one you'll see why I think this animal was the inspiration for 'The Elizabeth Dress'.

I'd love it if you'd post a picture. Jean

Jeanie, That's a plethora of picture examples of my opinion. Are you a show-off? I send pictures all the time to other email addresses but I'm too lame to send them to this forum.

This animal may have inspired mop heads, mostaciolli rigate, who knows what else? Stand one up on it's hind legs and put it next to the dress model . . . That's entertainment!!!

Looks like a cross between a haystack and shredded wheat biscuits to me.

I know art appreciation is in the eye of the beholder, but this beholder is having a hard time seeing it outside of the skill it took to get all of those loops the same size. Better her than me...

I think I finally got it. Someone simply gave up untangling the yarn and stuck it all together and said, "There. I'm done."
Haystack and Shredded Wheat and that dust mop dog....maybe it's camouflaging the dog? Somehow it makes me think of the Wicker Man.

Shudder...

I think I'm going to play a joke on my DD and put the dress on my FB page announcing that I found the perfect wedding dress for when she marries, and I have to start knitting now...

That ought to be good for a chuckle!

This I want to see. Wouldn't it be great if you could see her face when she sees it?


April 1st is coming.

April Fool's has come and gone in my neck of the woods. LOL It generated a stink load of replies on FB. DD's unqualified answer is "aw, <bleep> no!"
