Allá cuelga mi vestido. The Frida Kahlo paperdress in progress

I love drawing.  I love crafting.  I love street art.  And I LOVE making paper dresses. Perhaps because it combines all my art forms- I am so blissed out when I make these things!

Here is the latest one the compiles my collection of Frida doodles.

Stay tuned for photo shoot of finished piece next week.

I first became obsessed with paper dresses in January 2013.  Go to LINK.

Since then, I made three dresses [LINK].  One was sold and two ended up as street art in San Francisco.
