The Dress Doctor

The Dress Doctor

9″ x 16″  The Dress Doctor is an assemblage that hangs on the wall. Part of a series I am doing that utilizes old books, this piece pays homage to those seamstresses of yore. My grandmother was one of them. The book is embellished with an image of an old sewing machine, much like the one she used.

The piece is created inside of a wooden box top, which is covered in pattern paper. Lining the box is a cardboard box for a vital tool, the hem marker, which is mounted to the side of frame. I love the iconic image of a woman.

I created a wire dress form and mounted it to the side, balancing the image from the front cover. And what dress maker would be able to work without pins? A line of which frames the top corner.
