Altered Couture Magazine Slip into Sleepwear

Altered Couture Magazine Challenge
Slip into Sleepwear
Submitted for Review

Designed by: Sylvia Cruz Smith Cibolo Texas

I purchased this two piece vintage gown and robe set from a local thrift shop. These pieces had been hanging in my art room for a couple of years and I was just waiting for the right time work with them. After cutting, pinning, unstitching, stitching and adding some final details my design was complete. There were so many design options in my head so I decided on a two piece versatile dress. It can be worn in a casual setting, but would also make a fun evening dress. I submitted it to Altered Couture last week.

Creating Vintage Charm

Monday I received my first issue of "Creating Vintage Charm" Arts and Designs for Pretty Living Magazine by Sonia Crouse and her talented team. I met Sonia at Jennifer Hayslips " Once Upon a Dream Art Event last year in Asheville NC, and heard so many wonderful things about Sonia and her magazine from many of the artists that attended that event. I loved this magazine which arrived about when I needed some Happiness and Inspiration. Pink Flowers, Teacups, Pretty Things, Places that I am now planning on visiting, and the faces of all the beautiful, Happy and inspirational women including some of my friends and Facebook friends. I look forward to receiving future issues. Thanks Sonia and team, Sylvia Cruz Smith, Cibolo, Tx
