The Finished "Leopard Print" Dress

As promised, here are some photos of me sporting the finished dress. I wore it to my Spinners Weavers and Dyers Guild AGM and it was a real hit!






With a little "help" from Pickle 



This photo was taken while doing the final shaping, I think it is really interesting how the colour of the silk changes when wet (pieces at the top of the picture).

    1. Thank you Nada, I love the textured shapes but think I might also try your suggestion of using prefelts under the silk on one of my next garments, I think we will see a similar raised texture but also a "halo" of wool coming the the silk at the edges.

    1. Thank you Els, I am so happy with the colours! The photos really don't do justice to just how bright some of the blues are.
