I'm still working.... also I have a new inspiration

I saw something over the weekend that really sparked my creativity...

It had to do with coral... I've done some rough (and I do mean rough) sketches -- just a preliminary.  I get these things in my brain, I have to come home and jot it down or it "flies back out"  ;)

I have lots of decisions as to execution.  I can't even decide on the color.  Should it be white or coral (that orangey pinky color?)

Recently, I saw the fashion doll challenge and I had a crazy idea about a couture dress that looked like an inverted basketball net.  There would be a hoop that is orange -- similar to a basketball rim.
The top/bodice would mimic a basketball itself -- made of pebbled leather with stripes.  High stockings with garters that looked like the traditional tube sock top.

This was for the sports challenge one -- If you are not familiar with the challenge.... /  Click on challenge 1 on the menu along the left side.

I stumbled across it a few years back--- when some of the most amazing designers were in (some still are)...  I'm pretty sure that's where I first saw Huckleberry Jackson. -- I can't be positive.  Really, there are some masters out there.  Many should be designing for doll firms...  Superfrock, Tonner, Mattel should all take note!

I probably will never execute this dress, but it was fun to think about.
