New Jacket/Top

making a new top and desperate to get one which I can just throw on over whatever I am wearing within reason.

I have sketched my idea out and I have dyed some silk prior to making my nuno and steamed it to set .So often when I am doing a workshop or a book signing I am not wearing anything I have made and keep getting asked .

I do not wear my jackets they just pile up in the wardrobe so I have planned a garment I know I would wear.Click on the piccies to see.

Some of the samples are on a beautiful drapey knitted silk fabric which took the dye well.

Tomorrow pattern drafting and measuring

One thought on “New Jacket/Top

  1. Hi Chrissie,

    Can’t wait to see this. I love the green that you’ve dyed above…So pretty for Spring. Also love the length of this piece. I found that I wore a couple of my Flax longer, looser, comfy clothing more than anything else in my closet this past winter. I’m about to purge everything in there that I no longer wear and just have things that I love, can throw on over just about anything and look pulled together.

    Hope you’re having a great day…We’re enjoying a beautiful day here.
