A golden doubling up

Two-pieces-at-once

Last October three metres of crepe de chine arrived to be painted for a blouse. Three metres will take me about two weeks to complete, but before I begin such a project I take the opportunity to make some samples and often a scarf to establish that I’ve interpreted the brief as expected.

Here are a few photographs as the work progressed.

The finished scarf after steaming showing the colours just that little bit brighter.

And, half way through the three metres of crepe de chine – last autumn.

Fast-forward to February 2016 and the silk has been made up. I’m always thrilled to see my work transformed into garments.
