Eco dyeing on the catwalk

 
I am thrilled to announce that the dress I eco dyed for Tasmanian Miss Universe Australia entrant Stephanie King, in collaboration with couturier Rudolf Ramseyer, is now on display in the window of my studio. There are 15 metres of silk in this, which was donated by Ruche Fabrics. A project that both challenged and excited me … Call in soon and see it for yourself! [Photography: Jarred Seng]

The series continues.

Couldn’t resist seeing how this cotton top looks on a mannequin! I love this combo with one of my eco dyed camis and a silk skirt, set off by a gorgeous necklace by Rosemary Harper.

Eco dyed cotton remnants; vintage pattern Style 4043.

Eco chic

 
Eco dyed thrifted silk dress, to which I’ve added hand stitched appliqué circles using silk thread. I made the jacket from eco dyed cotton remnants; necklace made by Rosemary Harper.

Very happy with this result!

 

Still damp but couldn’t wait to share photos. Will post pics after washing and ironing later this week.
