My creative space has been all about putting the finishing touches onto this wedding skirt. Its for a lovely lady who is getting married at CERES in march.
When I was initially approached to make this I was completely freaking out at the prospect of making someones wedding outfit! As I am sure I have mentioned before, I am definitely not a professional dressmaker! Anyhow, this lovely lass had seen one of my nuno felted scarves and wanted a skirt and Cami made in a similar style, for her big day.
It's now almost finished, Yay!
Its made from hand dyed tissue silk onto which I have then felted on merino wool and silk loom waste.
The netting on the yoke is silk also.
There is lots of exposed over lock for texture.
Clarice, my mannequin is looking a little battered after being dragged around the markets over summer.
She needs some attention :)
