My new dyed jacket is a combination of hand-dyed duck* cloth and upcycled denim*.
The dyed part uses a shibori folded method…it’s a two part process. The first dye gives the color splotches and the folding gives the blue lines.
It’s made using Vogue pattern 9153.
*Duck is from the dutch doek or “linen canvas”. And denim? That’s jean material, aka serge de Nîmes or twill from Nîmes in France.
Silky Stripes…uses a fun of silk fabrics and a lovely chambray shirt that I promptly cut up for (part of) the sleeves and the collar.
I used Butterick pattern 5218 for this shirt.
Both of these (jacket and shirt) were made with french/flat felled seams. Sometimes, I line the garment. Or I serge. With the number of pieces of fabric that I put in the crazy garments I do something to stop the fabric from fraying away.
