Just a quick post before I hit the sack, I’ve just finished writing up how I have gone about things in making this skirt, but rather than bore you with all the details not least because I really must get some sleep as I have to make this up tomorrow, get a zip into it and hope it fits, I thought you would love to see the photographs.
When reading through the photographs, there are three different godets, two panels and one big panel which is meant to be a large dandelion seed head against a thundery day where it has just rained. Light and dark is achieved in the fabric with tie dying and another sneaky technique and then light and dark is achieved with the aid of printing and generally starting with the dark colours and bring the white in as I went along whilst screen printing.
Then I just added beads and sequins to complete my picture in my head, but you always new I was a glittery kind of girl, didn’t you?
Just to give you an idea of the time it takes to do things, picture 3,4 and 5 are two panels. They took five solid hours of sewing zig zag at a machine today to get that effect.
(and I am very sorry that they are not exactly in order but I must go to bed)
Hope you enjoy them.
