Was your heart ever broken enough to switch Art Gowns in mid creation?
Then outrage has compelled you to do a Tribute to Cecil The Lion, #CecilTheLion.
With tail thrown under her neck & crisscross armor to protect her, Marina Kanavaki, must be who this Art Gown is dedicated to.
Take a look at Marina’s blog Art Towards A Happy Day and be convinced. She is vegan, & a champion for all animals both wild and domestic.
Then I realized I owned about 500 men’s ties, mostly dated. I figured why not?
I deconstructed about 80 ties. A step ladder was used as an organizer.
I opted for regal colors red, gold & purple. Solids, paisley & medallions became the chosen patterns.
Contrary to regular established procedure, I made the tail first.
The bits on the back of the ties, that you pass the skinny part under, were fashioned into Cecilia’s dangling choker.

Of course the Art Gown I had originally started will be back next post, but I just had to break rhythm and design this tribute.
Marina & I are sick about what happened to Cecil The Lion. So, we’ve signed petitions & are doing what we can. You’re welcome to join in, if you already haven’t!
