You may remember, that I was provided with a particular bit of inspiration for designing a dress which will be worn for a friends wedding: a peacock feather.
So, what comes to mind when I think of peacocks? Truthfully, one summer in college when I worked at the a certain winery's main campus in that lovely oasis known as Modesto, California. While most of my palsy-walsies were taking the summer to travel and study abroad, I answered phones and took memos. No complaints though. That's real world experience right there.
The tie-in is, of course, the free-range peacocks that walk all over the campus. (Pssst. They poop all over it too.)
That particular memory doesn't provide much inspiration when it comes to making a Bridesmaids dress. Fortunately I had already thought of a dress I wanted to make, and the peacock challenge is the perfect color inspiration.
So, now when I think peacock, I think bright blue double georgette and colorful chiffon accents. I think V-neck and the illusion of a wrapped bodice. I think full, twirly skirt and drapey fabrics.
Oooh . . . I am excited about this one!
