Since we did silk painting in surface design class last month, I did a bunch of terrible dinosaurs on a piece of silk satin.
|Outlines done in resist with black dye.|
|The finished fabric, all filled in with more dye and steamed.|
There wasn't quite enough dinosatin for a complete lining, so I had to piece a bit of black satin to the tops of the front pieces.
It's probably because I foolishly used a pattern from the fashion show that was fitted to one of my models, and didn't alter it enough. Oops. I also didn't interface the front enough, so it's definitely one of my less good waistcoats.
I will hopefully take in the seams at some point to make it fit better.
|Hey….. wanna buy some dinosaurs?|
