|Dissolving the paint|
During the class I painted some silk and cotton which I bought at Mood during Lladybirds meet-up.
|Silk painted with nickel and grey|
|Before washing it properly, the colours are a bit softer now|
Any ideas for the cotton fabric? I have around 2.5 meters of it.. (around 3 yards).
This robins egg blue one is made without a pattern and I arranged the pleats on my dressform and then sewed it together. This approach has caused the side seams to move a bit towards the back, but I'm calling that a design feature :) The armholes are a bit too large, but it doesn't really bother me.
|Quite flowy, sorry for the crappy lighting|
|Enjoying the French country side|
|Begging? What's that?|
Both shirts have french seams and look really clean on the inside, which I really like.
This weekend my sister, Eef and me dyed some cotton scarves and some silk. At first my sister was sceptic about folding techniques, but look what she made!
|Very concentrated workers|
|My sisters creation|
I used a new technique from Shabd's book, which allows you to make polka dots and circles, how great is that?
I want to turn this piece of silk into an Anna maxi dress!
|The green is a bit faded in the picture, but in real life it looks beautiful!|
These photo's remind me that I should try and make a black skirt, since it is a very good staple piece to wear with all my new shirts. I was thinking this one from Pattern Cutting looks quite good to me..
