Number of elements: Dress, ‘shawl’, necklace, hat (to be worn with pointy part over model’s ear hanging slightly down.
: While making osso bucco, I looked at the oval shapes of the bones and thought that they could look like lace if I tied them together so, after cooking the bones and bleaching them in the sun, I ground the rough bits off, drilled holes and tied the ovals into flower shapes. I spent more time using power tools than at the sewing machine when making this dress.
