A milestone moment

Finished! Here is a short video of my free cut Julian Roberts-style tunic, made from eco dyed cotton interlock and woven cotton. Fabric dyed beforehand; layered with 3 kinds of eucalyptus, blackberry, fire bush and blackwood leaves; wrapped around an iron bar and slow cooked in a crockpot of native cherry, copper and spring water for 5 hours.

14 circles

Adding hand stitched appliqué circles to the dress I shared about the other day. Eco dyed vintage cotton, sewn with the silk thread I use to tie the bundles during the dyeing process.

[UPDATE – now on display at Ana’s Hairdressing Salon, St Marys, Tasmania.] 

Eco printing with ferns and gum leaves

A cotton/spandex top that I eco dyed last week (slow cooked in a crockpot of banksia leaves + alum with spring water; bracken fern and eucalyptus leaves between the layers). I will be listing this cute little top for sale soon in my online shop

Winter sunshine (I am in Tasmania after all!)

Eco dyed silk and wool, air drying on our tiny verandah.

 The sunlight makes it all look golden, but there is actually a lot of purple, green and soft orange as well! Closeup pics soon.
