Strolling While Wearing a Fancy Hat by Melanie  Dooley

Strolling While Wearing a Fancy Hat by 

I’m using some early 1800s French fashion plates I have to make t-shirt designs. They are original old hand painted images which should be framed and protected. But before I do that I want to bring them into the 21st century…on a t-shirt.

I will do a few in this series. Stay tuned.


1800, georgian, vulticulus, melanie dooley, rb–for–christmas, fashion, empire

I have no training in art or design – everything I do is from teaching myself. Most times it works, but sometimes it doesn’t. Every time it is fun and I’m still inspired to keep designing and making.

My first love is jewelry design but I occasionally find or create an image that I love enough to want to wear it or hang it on my wall – and that’s what you will see here on Red Bubble.
