More experiments. Will I ever get there? The pole wrapped shibori dyed charmeuse in shades of purple and yellow (which became green when I added the black) started out as a 60" square which I then cut on the bias to create this caftan. I read somewhere that working on the bias is like working with live fabric. No kidding. Every time I moved it the shape changed. The velvet coat was made from three yards of shibori dyed yardage dyed in shades of yellow (which became copper, rust and olive when I added black.) I love color theory! The experiment here was whether or not to dye one long piece or three smaller pieces precut to fit the back and sides. Just like writing.
