This was the first eco print of the season.
I modified this dress http://www.stonemountainfabric.com/shop/Sewing-Patterns/Sew-Liberated/p/Metamorphic-Dress-x33459593.htm by only making the under dress and lining the bodice.
The sewing job is not the best…..was hurriedly trying to finish it to wear on my birthday (didn’t end up wearing it…..because it is too big)
The biggest mistake was over estimating my size….. made the size 18! And it is too big on me. So it is now up for grabs, if anybody wants it. I will put names in a hat, if I get more than one person interested, a have a drawing on the forth of July.
Linen dyed with kamala. Over dyed, using resists, with madder. Bodice lining is linen dyed with madder.
For the contact prints… I used japanese knotweed leaves, cottonwood leaves and guava leaves on the skirt. The bodice has an unknown desert plant and maple seed ‘wings’.
It is a bit pale for my liking…. but perhaps somebody will like it! 🙂
