Searching through my blog archive tells me that I was working on this dress a year ago.
I am finally ready for it to go out into the world – I’ve taken some proper photos of it, worn by my gorgeous friend, and have listed it in my Etsy shop. I want to share some of the final photos here too.
This dress is one of my favourite things I have made so far. Naturally stained and sculptural, almost like it has grown up out of the landscape.
I had originally planned to eco-print the dress when it was finished. Luckily when I shared it on my Instagram page, everyone convinced me to leave it alone and let the subtle colours and patterns of each piece come through.
I am so glad I listened to them. I’m not usually that into greys, but there is something alive in this cloth…
