How fun! I would love to make a Vivienne Westwood dress. Too bad I don't have a lot of patience for sewing. Thanks for these links!

Hey Sharon!
How was your weekend? :)
Thanks so much for sharing these valuable links. Do you know anything about DIY acid wash jeans. Please let me know if you do!
Thanks

Hi Asian Cajuns-yes, I need more patience regarding sewing too, LOL!

Hi LaMimi-Checking on google, there are a few websites for diy jobs-I've not tried it myself though!!

Hi Sharon!
Martin Margiela is so crazy, lol. I have never seen a photo of him, have you? I doubt if I would wear a waistcoat like that... And I also wonder if the strips of newspaper you put onto the inside of the waistcoat so that they hang down outside the waistcoat won't tear off?
The Jade Jagger bracelet looks really good, though! I might try that one.
haha, the dress is too complicated for my simple mind ^^ I like Vivienne's eco style tips though, especially the one with the shawl and the different ways you can wear it.

I am looking for info on Janet Taylor Originals. Your site was the only site that came up when I googled it. But I can't find a reference to this on your site. Can you help me find it? I just bought a vintage Janet Taylor. It needs a bit of work, but I love it. Do you know anything about her designs? Her work? Her life? I think the dress is from the 1940s era, right? I am a vintage virgin, so I need your help. I paid $35 for the dress.
