I love natural fibers and this fabric is so soft and consist of a blend of silk and cotton. Although the digital print is bold I just love it. I will be making another outfit from this fabric. Not sure what but I just have to.
Lessons learnt. The skirt could have been a little longer and drape on the floor. Here is my latest creation.
I found this abstract printed cotton which I have used before but I think this maybe the last of this lovely print. This time I made a top and matching skirt and hat. It is a bold pattern and photographed well.
I have included two photos from our 2 days of walking in the Flinders Rangers. The bottom picture is of Mount Arden. We had two glorious days walking on the Heysen trail.
My front garden has some stunning lavender and it is one of my favorite scents. This evening dress is made from some lavender colored silk with a sash over one shoulder embellished with beads which give this outfit a soft romantic look.
It is the start of spring in Australia and my husband and I have been keeping up our fitness for the Heysen Trail walks. We are in our 5th year and we plan to complete this journey of 1200km with the End to End 8 group next year. Kuitpo Forrest wattle trees were in full bloom. I love the beautiful wildflowers.
This is the last that I have of this gorgeous fabric and I just had enough to make a sheath dress. Adding some deep purple highlights really brings out the pattern on this fabric.
I have been wanting to make an evening dress from this stunning blue silk for a long time. It is a combination of blue and black silk fibers and photographs well to a beautiful bright blue. I am extremely happy with the result. It is nice to have a variety of colors and different styles on my etsy sight for customers to choose from.
I love working with patterned fabrics and this bright cotton sateen was fantastic to work with. Here is my latest creation.
I had some quality time to finish three little creations. I found some micro fibre cloths that had a decorative edge, just like a hankie. So I experimented to see if I could make a jacket and I was very pleased with the finish. I have a few more in different colors so I may try a dress next.
The other outfit is a dress with a printed cotton bodice and a fitted bright red silk skirt with a black silk belt with a matching hat.
This multi colored cotton is so bright and gorgeous and the quality is fantastic to work with that I made a jacket and a little top to go with some high waisted pants. I love this fabric.
