Garment Making

I found an old white blanket upstairs which was labelled pure wool but after its few hours in the dye pot I’m questioning the truth in that label!

But nevertheless I am quite happy with the result.

Firstly I cut and hand-stitched it into a long, sleeveless gillet, added a couple of pockets with a silk trim and hand stitched around the raw edges. After wrapping it around a wooden dowel with some gum leaves I threw it into the dyepot from last weekend and boiled for a few hours.

It hasn’t dried yet but these are some prelim shots.
