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.

Got a Notion

Got a Notion

8″ x  6″ Got a Notion is an assemblage piece representing the sewing notions that have almost been forgotten. Snaps, hooks and eyes line the edges while a paper pattern lines the inside and back. Packages of needles, cards of snaps, spools of thread, a crochet hook, a wire dress form and other odds and ends adorn a wooden box. Items from a time almost gone by, that Mom and Grandma taught me how to use. By Heather Brush. Got a Notion is available for sale at The Artisan Center Along the Crooked Road, in Rocky Mount, VA. $30.
