…or, as I prefer to call it, plain and simple tie-dye. I broke my own rule and bought new silk – habotai 10 – which I dyed and made into a lining for the silk jacket.
The rest of this jacket will involve finishing off the outer stitching, making (piecing) a collar and binding, and then stitching it together. Still quite a long way to go, and many more hours. Thank you for all the encouragement during this process, and for the helpful ideas and suggestions.
I’m now taking a blog break for a couple of weeks, to do some home decorating. I have paint and I have rollers, and am looking forward to getting started. I quite enjoy painting walls, and our sitting/dining room is quite large – it’s actually two rooms with the dividing wall missing – so it will take some time.
During the break I’m going to be thinking about a few other things too. More on that later.
