This is a skirt or maybe a petticoat in the making. I bought the silk fabric maybe fifteen years ago but never used it because the colour doesn’t suit me.
This is the book that inspired me to do something with it. I’m sewing it into a four panel drawstring skirt with the intention of dyeing it with tea when it’s done.
I’m using variegated silk thread and making French seams.
I think I need to slow down my sewing and take more pleasure in it, so I’m sewing by hand.
I’m collecting tea bags in the freezer. I reckon I’ll have enough in a fortnight and the skirt / petticoat should be finished by then.
Drop by in a fortnight if you’re interested in the process.
Have a happy week.
