Recently, I’ve been doing a lot of solar dyeing. If you want to see the results, take a look at this post over on my other blog.
It’s a slow process but I’m enjoying it.
Another slow process is this:
It’s a slow story but in short, I used an old,worn out but gorgeous skirt as a pattern and made a very boring denim skirt. After a few wears I added the appliques above to all eight panels.
Since then I’ve used variegated silk thread to highlight and stiffen the hem. I’m not sure I’ve finished yet. A few more wears and I might know.
The appliques made me think of Japanese Boro quilts and I’ve now cut up a pile of worn out jeans to make my own version.
Do you keep on “improving” your projects? I’d love to know.
Thanks for dropping by.
