sewing prints

September 5, 2013


I have been itching to sew from this silk fabric. Eco printed early in the summer it was waiting for a quiet day when I would have enough time to play with the print and find the best design to make a functional piece without disturbing the abstract pattern. I also wanted to make the most of the size of the fabric and create almost ‘one size’ piece. And to make a versatile number, which could be worn as a tunic or a short dress, dressed up or down depending on the occasion.

Made from raw silk it features boat neckline, short cap sleeves and slightly cocoon shape – narrowing at the bottom edge. It would fit sizes S to L and is now available in my red2white shop with free worldwide shipping till Sept 20th, 2013.

When sewing from my eco prints I wonder what is the value of time?

Printing with plants is a slow process; it took several weeks to achieve  print like this. I have few more pieces in progress and will show them soon.
