Dotsie and MissWit Branch
The Shirt that feels like a Hug
In December 2004 my mother passed away unexpectedly. As the mother of "misswit," no one received more joy from my shmata business than she did.
As the months followed I felt an intense desire to honor my mother in a creative way. With a heavy heart as I and my family would go through the talismans of her life, I uncovered in a crumpled bag, "etchings" of water color designs from a Japanese watercolor class she had been taking. I had never seen them before and it was so like her, to be overflowing with this talent and have them so humbly hidden away.
Over a period of a few months, I combined some of the images, staying true to her colors, creating a collage with some. The result is a "lightweight long and short sleeve shirt for all seasons" that fronts as a canvas, with the look and feel of being handpainted. To quote a dear friend, "this shirt feels like a hug." As a little girl my mother’s nickname was Dotsie, and so I present to you a taste of her creativity and talent and a small token of my love for her -
