Although these photos of my daughter were taken several years ago, I am posting them because not only is she flying off to Iceland today to spend some fabulous time with friends and I am going to miss her, these photos also show that you can indeed look stylish whilst 'wearing the sofa'.
The Goddess of Curtains writes
I am fascinated with the intersection of home furnishings and fashion, the application of textiles and the associations of adornment, which fabrics and designs become upholstered headboards, loveseats or pillows, and which become dresses, blouses, coats and jackets. Over the last decade, home furnishings and clothing fabrics have raided each others wardrobes---swapping designs and textures, in the spirit of today’s design democracy where the structured rules of style have become increasing difficult to identify.
I am always on the look out for the perfect texture, colour and weight of fabric for a project, and sometimes that means raiding the labelled 'upholstery fabric' bin - which is where I found this perfectly gorgeous 'upholstery' fabric to make this little coat for my daughter.
If the line ever truly existed between home furnishings and clothing, between sofa, curtain, pillow or jacket, dress, blouse and pants, it has been crossed and re-crossed many times. In today’s eco-conscious world of repurpose the line may fade away altogether. - Goddess of CurtainsSo whilst it may be stylish to wear the sofa, perhaps matching the rest of the living room decor isn't!
(In my defence I only made the matching pouffe once her coat was too small to wear anymore!)
Sweetheart, missing you already x
