One last look, a few snap shots of jackets I sent off at the ACC Baltimore craft show.
“Leaf”, sewn from two different kimono silks. I sewed on the little coral beads as though they were veins in the leaves. The natural coral looks like tiny irregular sticks.
Pink and grey, I love that color combination!
A fabulous shibori for the collar.
‘Stripes’, a jacket made from a wonderful splash print. How about the subtle staccato feeling created by the narrow strips of the black and white flower print? I do like the irregular cropping that happens when you cut into a print.
I love applique, I love the work of it and I love the look of it. Little invisible stitches holding shapes in place.
A turquoise kimono silk jacket with appliqued, cloud blue colored squares.
But how could I resist? Look at that design! A fuzzy grid. The woven grid adds a very cool, extra feeling of movement to the diagonal design.
