Printing on Clothing

I’ve always wanted to be able to wear my art, as well as display it.

When my studio-mate, Merill Comeau, printed and painted a men’s dress shirt, and then tailored it to fit her, I was really inspired to make something for myself.

Tuesday night I made a sleeveless white cotton blouse with a peplum, and yesterday, I monoprinted a construction fence on it.

I’m very inspired to make some more tops, and I’m going to investigate making them for others.
