New design range continues!

 
Eco dyed thrifted dress, with my eco dyed silk fabric and thread as hand-sewn appliqué. I made the jacket from eco dyed cotton remnants; the alpaca scarf is also eco dyed (and crocheted) by me. For sale soon in my online shop!

A Very Tasmanian Dress

I hope you enjoy this short video which documents the finished design of Stephanie King’s gown for the Miss Universe Australia 2016 event. It was created by couturier Rudolf Ramseyer from fabric I eco dyed at his request, supplied by Ruche Fabrics.

Drumroll please!

I’m very excited to be able to share this at last – it’s been so hard to keep the finished dress a secret …

 

Here is the much-anticipated reveal of the Miss Universe Australia dress made by couturier Rudolf Ramseyer, using fabric which I eco dyed at his request. I am absolutely thrilled with what he’s done with it, and how beautiful it looks worn by Tasmanian entrant Stephanie King. [Photos by Rudolf Ramseyer; silk chiffon from Ruche Fabrics]

Upcycled fashion + eco dyeing

 
Latest eco dyeing waiting for the right customers! A dress and two jumpers that are both sustainable and unique.

Luckily, native cherry grows on our land … 

 
Cotton cardigan reinvented with eco dyeing (native cherry + copper) and an added torn vintage silk trim. Goes well with the asymmetric cotton tunic I made from eco dyed fabrics a couple of weeks back!

I love the variety of greens it gives. The cardi was originally a pale mint; the dress fabrics were beige.
