This outfit was a combination of natural colored linen with a resist shibori/eco print ruffle. The black splotches (caused by the rust water/egg white mixture I was dipping the maple leaves into) were my attempt to disguise the blob I accidentally got on the yellow trying to chase the kitten off. The jacquard linen pants where dyed in the same dye bath as the ruffle.
Tina Givens dress pattern. Sonya Philips pants pattern.
Wore it to work yesterday and I felt lovely! 🙂 (Didn’t wear with with the striped shirt, wore a black short sleeved shirt since it is still warm here).
…. as fall approaches I always get a bit teary and sad (which is odd, as autumn used to be my favorite time of year!) And I miss my family.
But this blast of color makes me smile!!

This little project started out as a skirt for Eleanor. But there were left over pieces big enough to cut out a jumper for Josephine …… so I thought, matching outfits! Especially as they will be seeing each other this weekend.
I am hoping for a “COUSINS” photoshoot by Lilly!!
Organic cotton baby corduroy . Shibori dyed with Lac…. sprinkled with turmeric and logwood. Redbud, liquid amber and purple carrots.
