I have already mentioned in one of my projects how I started sewing my outfits for archaeological fieldwork.. Last season I completely changed my look, switched from tees and pants to tunics/short dresses and leggings.. That combination turned out to be the best for super-hot summers and also very comfortable.. I like to call it my stylish while digging collection..
This very short dress I have made last year and it was my favorite of the season.. I used pattern #122, from Burda 04/2010.. It is simple loose dress with drawstring to give it a shape.. The fabric was find from the remnant bin.. I also had some leftovers of the fabric with owl print which I used for drawstring and bias tapes.. All those details were main reason why I really love this dress.. I added pockets for my pens, cell phone, walkie-talkie and every other little thing I could need while working..
Somehow, skulls started dominating in this photo-shoot.. These cute shoes with skull print were a gift from my dear friend Neda, and it was first time I wore them outside..
My sister and I were walking around our neighborhood hoping to find a place without absurd graffiti.. We stumbled upon gray building with electrical stuff and stayed there.. Of course, I had to pose in front of the door with skull and warning – danger! High voltage..
All the fun did not end there.. Now I’m on the excavation, and by the trench where we are digging I saw this tape with similar message.. And there’s skull.. My friend remembered that in cottage where we keep our equipment there is a whole roll with that tape, so on our break we went there to take a few photos.. That way you can also see how my outfit looks in real archaeological life..
Once again for great photos credits go to my favorite sister Dina.. For the last two I have to thank my friend Snave.. And last, but not least, big thanks to my friend Neda :)
