Shrinking Levis in bath tub

    Newer Older

    This is illustration for biographical story I have written where Norma encouraged me to wear my tight Levis into the hot-water tub to shrink them, to conform to my body.

      It was an uncomfortable process? You don't look very happy:-)

      Owen, helen, Margriet, Zulma, thanks. YES, it worked, but to this day I detest anything skin-tight on my body! Margriet, it was both uncomfortable and weird.

      Oh Ann, did you really do this? so funny!
      you look rather uncomfortable in this painting, how long did you stay in the tub? I have my eye on the pretty pink chair beside the tub. I'm looking forward to your biography :)

      thanks, h g , and yes, Patricia, I did both the bathtub shrinking Levi thing and the painting. I didn't use any reference for the painting other than my imagination. Someone thought I had green boobs but that's supposed to be a green bra, not that it matters.

      Wonderful artwork! I love this one. I didn't notice that you were wearing jeans until I read the description. What a wonderful story and artwork to match. Fantastic.

      Did it work? The shrinking I mean?
      SO cool you did this from your imagination! You have a good one that is for sure.

      thanks, Imajane, I think it worked as I could never get the Levis on again.

      A wonderful painting, Ann. I am trying to imagine getting off a pair of wet, hot tight Levis????? Some sort archaic punishment? Lordy!:)

      I can't even stand taking off my wet bathing suit!

      Kathleen, must've been thought up by the same MAN who came up with high-heeled shoes! Feldweg, thanks, too.

      never did this but I used to wash the jeans in hot water to shrink them and then struggle to pull them on. Once on they were fine and eventually wore in. This must have been an ordeal. I love your pictures and the stories to go with them.

      Excellent work but it doesn't look too comfortable.

      Shrinking jeans... so love ❤️ this!! Beautiful art Ann! My jeans were so tight I remember laying flat to get the zipper up.
