Little dresses inspired by Vintage
I made this cute little dress as one of my weekend projects. It's about 7 inches, and I made the little wire hanger too, so that I can hang it on the wall. I had so much fun making the dress, that I made several more of them out of some fabrics and trim scraps that I have. They are up for sale on the New Crafty Page , along with some of my handpainted hat boxes. The little dresses that I've made so far are 1950s to early 60s style dresses, mostly full skirts. This weekend, I have plans to try making some Edwardian and 1920s style dresses too.
My thoughts on image theft. People seem to think that because an image is on a public website, that it is free for the taking. This is not true, especially for copyrighted images and artwork. You need either written permission or you need to pay a fee for the rights to use an image. To take an image from a website to use on your own website is wrong. Then to lie when confronted about it is even more wrong, especially when it is so obvious. Someone took an image from my site and used it on their own site. This person was foolish to think that I wouldn't see the site myself or that one of my customers wouldn't spot it and tell me about it. The person was also foolish because we could have been friends. I would have gladly made a similar image for her to use if she had asked. We could also have exchanged website links. But instead she chose to take something that wasn't hers, which doesn't use much creativity or integrity.
(ps, the images on my own site are ones that I either made myself, own, or are royalty-free)
