This is another full outfit, this time in blue/green color scheme. I call it "Peaceful Waters". It is made up of an eight point handkerchief skirt, an obi belt, bolero, scarf and hat. I dyed a purchased silk camisole top to go with it. It is all handmade felt and silk (fabric and natural silk fibers). The question I had was whether it looked better with or without the hat. It is amazing the difference that a hat makes! I think the hat pulls it together?
My most recent work is the lilac and magenta kimono style coat is constructed of handmade felt - studio dyed with some shibori pole-wrapping techniques.
