My mom bought me this book for Christmas, and I'm finding it so inspiring! " Self Portrait in a Velvet Dress."
Pardon my crummy photos…it's a book full of images of Frida's wardrobe. Truly amazing. The traditional Mexican patterns are so simple, I'm feeling inspired to try and make my own "Frida" outfit. I don't think my embroidery skills are up to par however…
The book also includes many photos of her white petticoats, bags, scarves, and head pieces. This book is a must for the Frida or textile lover.
