After a productive afternoon spent foraging on our land yesterday (see previous post), the eco dyeing is in full swing!

Love how volunteer model Sarah Parker looks in my entry in the Queensland 2016 Art to Wear Awards! Titled ‘The Making of Mary Mordaunt’, it is made from an eco dyed and rusted vintage slip and a Victorian chemise, to which I’ve added hand stitched and crochet embellishments with vintage silk and shredded paper around the hem. More wearable art entries on their Facebook page.

I background dyed this thrifted cashmere scarf first in some used dye, then layered it with leaves and wrapped and tied it around an iron spring. Steamed for 2 hours and unwrapped the next day.

Had some fun with this yesterday – new puff-sleeved bolero with raw edge piecing detail, made from my eco dyed cotton fabrics.
I have also made a mini video: (
