Call for entries: Altered Couture

"Dreaming of Spring"

I finished embellishing a vintage hat last night that I'm going to send off to Belle Armoire Magazine. Maybe I'll wear it for awhile first!

From their website:

Altered Couture (Volume 3!) (Newsstand Date:
November 1, 2007)
A hand-me-down sweater … a raggedy old skirt from the thrift store … a plain T-shirt … Using just a few tools coupled with your creativity, all of these items can be transformed into fantastic works of wearable art! The publisher of Belle Armoire and Somerset Studio invites you to submit your own altered and embellished clothing and accessories to be considered for the third volume of this exciting publication. Chapters will include Skirts & Dresses, Pants & Overalls, Jackets & Vests, Shirts & Tops, Children’s Wear, Sassy Shoes, and Accessories.

Deadline for artwork to be received: June 15, 2007. Please read submission guidelines before sending your submissions to: Stampington & Company · C/O: Altered Couture · 22992 Mill Creek, Suite B · Laguna Hills, CA 92653

What a fun idea Cyndi!!!
I love old hats! My mom used to have a bunch of old ones in really neat hatboxes. I loved trying them on as a little girl. Wish she'd kept them!
Yours is very retro looking for sure!
Thanks for sharing!

LOL!! I'm a hat collector, but not a wearer Betzie :-) I loved this hat the moment I set eyes on it.

Are you thinking about making something to submit to Altered Couture?
Betzie said…
Well, I think you should model this for the magazine Cyndi! ;-)
I hadn't thought about the Altered Couture...Let me look up the word in the dictionary first...ha ha. I need to start doing crossword puzzles like my grandmother used to do. Wards off altimerzers so I've read. LOL
