today in the studio: checky reds, deconstructed

I've got red thread in the serger and a heap of truly ugly red and white checked shirts before me, waiting to be chopped up.

In my head they will end up something like these Comme des Garcons pieces.

Of course they won't end up anything like them, but these are a nice jumping-off point for my brain. Someone else already gave me permission for seersucker to get weird — if I needed that, there it is.

Then when I'm done these are waiting for me — variations on a theme, this time in black.

That's what I'm doing for the next few days. -helen
