Hey! I made that!

Tonight 11pm, exhausted and driving back from the 24hour Longs with a fresh batch of color remover I had to suddenly pull over when I saw this at the bus stop. I ran across the street to take the picture.

I made that dress!
Or rather; I worked on that dress.
There were five variations of it (including a men's jacket).

I sewed the white guy on the front, put the lining in and I think I remember doing the hem...
 
...not sure why this was as exciting as it was.  Maybe it's the sleep deprivation, but it is the first time I've seen my work show up on a bus stop in the middle of the night.

That is so amazing! Bet you were awake after that! In what context did you work on that? Cheers! MOM

1. well yes, I recognized my work (I knew I was sewing for Macy's)
2. What context? Macy's hired Cass to make 5 "coture" designs with that specific Hershemberg image... and we made them super nice at CMC.
3. thanks Kelly

Hershenberg? That sounds wrong... eh I'm stuck in a place with no reference books.

Kieth Haring, he died of AIDS in 1990 and did a lot of art for AIDS charities before he passed.
