Gone, but not forgotten. These jackets came with me to the ACC Baltimore show and from there, off they flew.
“Feathers and Wings”, pieced from an amazing kimono silk with flying cranes and pine tree branches.
From the side. I love the energy in these old silks!
Tina’s “Purple Cranes”, pieced so they fly up the jacket’s center front.
From the side, cranes on the sleeve.
“Umbrella Trench”. You know I love these Japanese designs! Piles of parasols.
“Silver Forest”, the prettiest kimono silk.
With beads added, to sparkle like snow.
“Lagoon”, I was thinking of sunlight refracting in a pool.
Like hatchlings, they leave the nest and fly away. A good thing! It makes room for the next generation.
