Seventies Dress, and Dovima

A sweetly simple long-sleeved 70s-Victorian black crepe turtleneck, with dropwaist, flared skirt and seven self covered buttons at the wrist, was compromized by moths. I cut out a green felt patch in the eXACt shape of that famous Avedon pic of Dovima with elephants, and gave her a ball to play with because she seemed to need it. Then sewed it on with contrast blanket stitch.
