Left with a sash


So someone took the dress and left the sash. How am I to interpret this?

  • They wanted the dress. It’s quite small, though, the statue is less than a half size person, and it’s not sewn together in the sides, so it would still need a belt to hold it together.
  • They saw my puting a dress on the statue as a political statement against nude females in public, ripped the dress off and left the sash in her hand as if she were a stripper, letting go of her last piece of clothing. Thus pointing out that females should be naked in public
  • They thought it was time for a change, the dress had been on for almost a week

  1. Tragiskt! Hon var ju så fin i klänningen!!


  2. Oh that is a shame.. but I expect someone thought what gorgeous fabric! Who knows, but I like Jung – there is no truth only the stories we tell ourselves make yours a happy one.

    Maybe the fabric was used by someone who can’t afford to buy it but saw it as a gift – as we speak it is being made into a pretty dress for a little girl who might not have many clothes of her own? Either way, you sent out a blessing so I am sure it has gone to a good cause.


  3. Oh, no! But I agree that you can make this story a happy one. Are you thinking of trying again?


    • Yes! yesterday I finished a skirt för another statue, and the first one will definately get another outfit. It was great fun even though the dress disappeared so fast


  4. I love that you made a dress for her! That´s just awesome. It must have been quite a thrill to put it on the statue. Too bad that someone decided to take it with them. ~ Ava
