For a long time I had lost my mojo.
I just couldn’t think what to do with this dress….. well I knew what I wanted to achieve but just couldn’t quite sort it in my head.
And then IT CLICKED
Detail of one sleeve (the other is plain)
Gold leaf, gold work and spiral couching.
Colours match the lining.
These gold work hares! A labour of love.
Finally found a home.
Placed to contrast with the matt texture of hand dyed scrims.
Playing around with placement…. and hand dyed silk velvets to contrast with the scrim.
Add in some textured wool spirals….
And slowly work your way from one side to the other.
