Foraging

  
Enjoyed gathering materials for eco dyeing while Ian did some work on our house. Wild flowers, fungi and a marauding insect also make an appearance! A beautiful spring afternoon.

Very happy with this result!

 

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

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.
