How to be sustainable

 

  1. Have friends who find old mannequins at the dump (2 found so far).
  2. Discover some fabric in a local charity shop.
  3. Eco dye some vintage silk.
  4. Then use a vintage pattern for the skirt and a minimal waste pattern (Shape Shape 2) for the vest!

I seem to have a thing about circles this year!

 
Slow stitching the last of 4 textile scrolls. Eco dyed vintage wool blanket and linen or cotton; hand stitched.
