Purple is one of my fav colors. Purple in summer reminds me lavender. The nuno felt dress made with my purple dyed silk .......
用羊毛? 對, 香港的火熱天氣, 無阻我製作這輕薄絲料混羊毛裙子.
Originally, I tie dyed the silk chiffon in a pot with logwood chips The bundles with some euc silver dollars to have reddish orange. Intended to make them scarfs but I was not quite happy with the result. I tore them in strips to make a nuno felt dress.
The back, main color is purple
The front is more reddish
In a hot summer afternoon I made the dress like a farmer in the field, with sweats..... After hours of layering....
then rubbing, the easy action....
Finished the dress and fit to form.
Front and back of the dress
Wondering if Mogi approves it?
I made the dress from scratch to finish, that's the present I made for myself but probably not to wear, just to challenge own creativity and practice for what I've learnt.
My day is due and I can "claim" my hubby a present. Formerly I demanded yards of silk fabric to play with but I found a body form is what I want. This is a must for a garment felter. I love it. BUT I still want my wearable demo by a model in a vivid way. Expecting.......
Recently apart from making the above nuno felt dress, I've also made another gown with the tone of purple. I used the silk scrap dyed in logwood pot to do the texture surface of the should strip. Will show more after shots with a pretty model. Stay tuned.
