For ACC Baltimore 2017

A new trench coat sewn from vintage meisen kimono silk.
Finished and ready for the 2017 American Craft Show in Baltimore, Maryland.
Coming up soon! February 24-26.
No, my picture is not out of focus. It’s that amazing meisen fabric, a Japanese ikat. First they print the fabric, then they unweave it. Then they reweave it.
They reweave it.
When the threads are rewoven they do not align properly. That’s what creates those beautiful soft edges.
So Cool!
