When Cut is Like Grammar

Recently, I had the opportunity to visit the Legion of Honor Museum in San Francisco and view the High Style collection from the Brooklyn Museum.

Interestingly, the exhibit lets you take a peek at the process behind these beautiful gowns. As I have been writing these past ten days, there is always a process behind the product. Always!

Take a look at these. Looks like quite the sleeve action.

The following dress design is wonderful just as it is. Can you picture yourself stepping out for an afternoon with the girls in this lovely frock?

I loved the following quote. I can understand grammar. Cut–not so sure about.

quoteHere is my favorite dress. Reminds me of the dress that I wore for our engagement picture. Disclaimer! I am really not that old–my dress, which I sewed was made from a retro pattern!

The following dresses are encouraging for real women. The mannequin has a tummy!

Embrace your process! It is what will move you forward toward your product. If you write, love your grammar. If you design, get acquainted with cut. If in San Francisco before July 19, 2015, go see this wonderful collection. There are some brilliant and more brightly colored frocks.

Here’s a sample from designer Arnold Scaasi, 1983. Yes, folks, this was the 80s! Well, what can we say–maybe not in the Northwest where I live. poppies

Marlee Huber ~ For Your Flourishing Life!

About Your Flourishing Life

As a child, Marlee Huber loved to ramble through gardens sampling juicy berries and delighting in the heady fragrance of roses. As an adult, she thrills at maintaining a country garden in the foothills of the Washington Cascades. Something happened in 2012 that changed everything for Marlee. She followed the love of her life as he bicycled across the continent from their home in the NW to his brother's home in the Virginia. Ninety days later she came home and has never been the same. After photographing the backroads and hamlets across America--all on auto, she came home and took an online photography course, read dozens of books on technique and vision and stepped out into a new career. Her passion is coaching young people to discover their brilliance. She calls it Life-Themes Coaching and during one nearly half-day session, she unpacks what makes you brilliant and one of a kind. Then she matches the discoveries with a photography session where she tells the story of your life with her camera. In her personal life, she is a wife, mother, and grandmother delighting in her flourishing family!
