30 Dresses

I got an e mail this morning from my cousin's photo gallery, Alan Klotz Gallery about a current show, entitled Thirty Dresses by JoAnna Johnson. She sewed by hand (I assume a sewing machine here) thirty black or white dresses and then photographed them in various landscapes.
I love the pictures and thought I 'd share them with you. If you are in NYC you should take a look. He's in Chelsea, not all that far from our garment district favorites.

Have a great 4th of July everyone. We are doing our celebrating tonight, it's my birthday and anniversary (kind of poor planning on my part) and then I have a lunch date tomorrow with my bff for our annual birthday lunch. The rest of the weekend I plan on sewing. I have my jacket to finish: the cuffs are half sewn on, topstitching and buttons and I'll be done. Finally. Then I have at least 2 tops that I have cut out to sew.
Happy sewing.


  1. Cool, but kind of sad at the same time. I'm not sure why- maybe they look lonely or lost? It reminds me in a way of theuniformproject
    Have a HAppy Birthday, anniversary and 4th of July. That is a lot to celebrate!

  2. Your assumption is correct, I did use a sewing machine. Happy Birthday. Mine is in two weeks.

  3. Happy Birthday and Anniversary! Have a great time! love those photos.

  4. Looks cool. The picture you posted kind of reminds me of a burka though. (I think I mean burka...errr the long black veil thing worn my very religious Muslim women.)
