Colors of Spring

We're still building a fire in the wood stove but the colors of spring are upon us.  First the moss on the rocks turns a brighter yellow green.  Soon the dogwoods will be popping. This shibori dyed silk charmeuse and devore caftan jacket makes a perfect cover for chilly spring evenings.  After dyeing the silk, I ripped it in strips and serged them together alternating fabrics.  One size fits many.  You can find it on Etsy or email me for something specific.  There's nothing better than collaboration.

Please, be plalyful!

If there is one thing we don't have enough time for each year as we grow older it is play.  With six yards of shibori dyed gauze, it's easy.  No matter how you wear it or what you do with it an element of play is involved. I used to think I was the only one who understood this piece of Truly Wearable Art.  Then one day a rather mature, distinguished looking woman came into my booth.  I wasn't sure anything I had would speak to her.  Then she bought my long gauze piece.  She knew exactly what to do with it.  I was impressed and learned not to assume anything. Find this beautiful flowing silk on Etsy.  Want another color?  Let me know and I will get to work.
