How to make a tunic

I did a guest post on a friends style blog, Alyson is Neat, and showed how to make a Grecian Tunic. And I did a little illustration with it. I think it's art related enough so I thought I throw it up on this here art blog. Here it is and the final product:



Here are the instructions I wrote:

So here's what you need to create this tunic, it only took a couple hours and can be dressed up and is still comfy enough to sit around the house. For my fabric I used a remnant I had bought from a fabric store, it's a silk crepe so it would be really flowy. I only needed about a yard.


To start I first measured how big I wanted the tunic, I wanted it about to my elbows and at least 27" long (the zippers length), after I cut out two rectangles which with my measurements were 40 inches wide by 30 inches long. I cut one rectangle in half for the back and sewed on the zipper. Then I faced the two rectangles face to face and sewed the top leaving about 12 inches in the middle open for my head (important). Then sewed the sides leaving again about 12 inches open at the top for my arms (that's important too!). After that I turned the shirt right side out and figured out where I wanted my waist and cut slits on the front and back for a belt or sash... And voila! You have a homemade Grecian tunic. I hope my instructions were understandable :D

Some pieces from my Show

These are a couple watercolors I did for the show. I haven't used watercolor since freshman year but it was fun to experiment... I think next I'm going to try out pastels next, I love them freshman year.

Sorry these aren't very good pictures, they aren't scans just quick shots. I'll get better images.

A little from Work

Here's just some cute pictures from my work. This is Sherri and I, she was my awesome intern from State who is majoring in interior design. She helped me re-hang the front room and was so great to have around. I miss her so much.
That was the day she said my legs look antique... hahaha cause they were so white. Oh we had such great times running around the Design Center and trying to sit and try all the chairs. I called it "Goldielocksing"

The Preserve Opening

Friday night was my opening for my show The Preserve at Starkweather Arts Center. It went really well I sold a painting and some prints, and Anna also sold a few paintings as well. So overall great night!
































A bunch of my buds were there, pictured is my fashionable buddy Jen, and Cat and Sara stopped by too! Jaye Thomas of the Rogue Satellites played after the opening and he sounded great! Perfect to go with art and wine. My friend Heather also did a write up on the show on the Perfect Laughter blog, which is a detroit based art blog run by my friends Dennis and Christina (the sweetest people ever! they exposed my screens for me). The night wasn't over until we saw a stupid kid get arrested for fighting outside the bar we were at. Some night! By the time we got home all of us were about the pass out. Man, I feel like so much stress has been lifted off my shoulders. Now time for Arts, Beats and Eats Festival which now is a few blocks away from my house! Yay!

Screen Print Glimpse

Here's a sneak peek of my screen print that will be available this Friday at Starkweather Arts for my show The Preserve: The Work of Anna Cangialosi and Lauren Moyer

It's a 4 color print that is 12x16 on 250 gsm archival paper. You can buy it unframed or order a framed version. Will post the framed version soon, it's pretty sweet.

Colors are Blue, Yellow, Pink and Purpley grey. I wish the yellow was a little more transparent but for my first time doing this at home, I'm pretty happy with the results, they came out great!

Lookie there!

Well here's the best picture of the Caterpillar Dreams painting. I still want to add a little more linework to it but it's done for now. I've been lately overworking too many of my paintings. I need to get a better picture of it for the internet, I really hate how the colors get online, how do some artists always make their art look good on their blogs.

2010

Well onward to a new year.

2009 could be a forgotten year, Yes, I did spend a wonderful summer with my cousin in Alaska and I am so grateful but I feel I have fallen off the artist bench and I need to pick myself up again. The year ended for me with a terrible job rejection but I look on to the new century and hope that positive thoughts will prevail.

I began 2010 in Washington DC with one of my oldest friends, Kate Leboeuf and my ever wonderful boyfriend Kevin. And jobwise I'm off to a great start I now am working as the Gallery Manager of TRA Art located in the Michigan Design Center, I'm hoping being surrounded by huge paintings of beautiful landscapes and people can fill me with daily inspiration.

I have sketches to be made into paintings and screenprints... redesigning of my blog and website ahead of me. Let's do this.

So onward into 2010, may it be the change that everyone needs, and only change for the better.

Till next time.
