A vintage damask tablecloth morphs into a drapey vest. Bound and appliquéd with silk; lots of hand sewing! All naturally dyed.
I’m rather glad this is done! I did nearly as much unpicking as I did sewing. Worth it in the end …
This is a metamorphic garment which can be worn either as a skirt or harem pants. Fabrics: eco dyed cotton; found wool and gaberdine remnants. Hand sewn hems and top stitching.
Eco dyed upcycled cotton and lace jacket – some more of last Monday’s eco dyeing.
[Native cherry + copper dyepot; layered with eucalyptus leaves and ferns. Wrapped around an iron bar. Simmered for 5 hours (size – L).]
I’ll be there with a range of eco dyed products, including fashion, canvas art, handmade books and cards, fibre jewellery and more. See you on the day!
