"Ms. Raspberry Mochachino" is a smoldery vixen. This frothy dame's 1940's style silk swing dress was pieced together with scraps of re-purposed silk garments, hand dyed in a matching color palette. The skirt is all blouse panels, trimmed with 12 feet of marabou boa feathers and decorated with a "steamy" felting pattern. The obi belt is made from a pant leg that I hand felted. It tied with a vintage obijime (kimono belt) and is embellished with hand dyed ostrich feathers.The collar is trimmed with marabou boa and hand dyed peacock feathers. The buttons come courtesy of three different grand mothers button jars I was lucky enough to inherit.
The perfect elegant attire for a wedding, cocktail party, or a cruise

Detective Sam Spade (Bogart) enters his locked office to find Ms. Raspberry Mochachino Smoldering in his chair. He's not sure if it's her or the ciggy she's dragging on.
Puzzled ,"How'd you get in here?".
"I have my ways." as she sums him up with her smoldering eyes. "Sam. I need your help."
He can tell right away that this Rich and Frothy Dame, is much more dangerous than her innocent face portrays. He's not really sure She's the victim, but can't help be intrigued by her simmering beauty. "Tell me More"..................

This collection was shown, by request, @ Liberty Art Gallery - "Fiber! Celebrating Fiber as Art"
