It come to my mind why not make a nuno felt top with the other side to try eco print. This is what I made. Front look and reverse.
很用心的用我自行印染的雪紡碎料做了這件混絲羊毛背心, 可雙面穿, 我要在白色的內層以植物印染, 效果可能未如理想, 但我仍要嘗試.
Back and reverse
Materials are lace for neckline, chiffon scraps of my eucalyptus eco prints, merino wool and own degummed mulberry silk.
For the textural surface I put the chiffon scraps and scattered mulberry silk on the front.
"Oh, my supervisor... Is it alright?"
I've to concentrate on my work....... but....
This little thing ..... what drew your attention? Indeed he always interrupts my attention with funny acts.
How sweet Mogi you keep me company. Anyway after almost 4 hours I finished it.
A nuno felt top with chiffon base, chiffon textural surface, lace neckline and manipulated with little raw Teeswater fleece on shoulders.

It's my expectation
White of reverse is fine. It's good enough as it is. To make eco print I may take the risk to have a mess as outcome may not be as expected but I decided to do with the eucalyptus globulus from my US nice friend Melinda.
After boiling for 1.5 hours the bundle got dark brown. Who knows how it looks?
A mess? Unexpected?
Reveal until next post.
