23 February 2007

The work for this jacket began here, hydrangea and samples and this was the sample I liked

and then excuted on a jacket

The steps involved are first dye the jacket a mottled color

Then draw the individual floretes,

then hand-stitch the edge of each motif

Each stitched motif is gather anf bound

then discharged and dyed in a lavender grey dye-bath

After all the threads are removed, carefully, the jacket looks like this:

This jacket is also a medium, not because I have a thing for mediums but because I they were the first one sewn. Again if you are interseted come to West Palm Beach Fine Craft Show and try it on.
