Black work and Patchwork



The beginnings of a garment. Kitchen experiments with rust dyeing and natural dyes are being patched together.
I'm no apparel designer so with this garment I'm just winging it, making a large T shape, one size fits all.Square neckline.Its going to be all handmade and hand stitched.
 I'm adding small black work embroidery bits here and there. Adding to the patchwork appearance.
The kitchen experiments of making marking on cloth have been resumed because more fabric is required for this garment. I'm inspired by stuff, steep + store.

I too have been steeping in my kitchen and making my own designs by hand. It is awesome! Diane

Thank you for all the encouragement and apprecation. I'm dyeing and patching together pieces of eco dyed fabric with renewed vigour. :)
