Shop Blouses and Dresses Made From Paintings


Paintings can live many lives...as static artworks on walls, as flowing panels moving in the wind, and as clothing responding to our postures and gestures.


Katie Westmoreland sews garments from paintings created in nature and in-studio.

Each piece is one-of-a-kind, telling the story of dappled light, weaving vines, and enigmatic shadows.

Blue Block Tank
ADD TO CART
$245

The Blue Block Tank is a one-of-a-kind blouse cut and sewn from a cyanotype and muslin textile painting of the long shadows made by the winter light shining around bare trees in the middle of winter in Prospect Park. The hem is raw and will naturally fray just a bit overtime, but the fraying is contained by a stitch line about 1/4" in. The blouse features french seams for durability, grace, and versatility. There is no set front or back inside or outside - feel free to flip this piece around and inside out for a few different looks. While the garment is sewn to withstand the washer, the best way to care for this blouse is to hand wash in cold water and hang to dry. Iron on the cotton setting as needed.
