I love colour. LOVE it!
So how the hell did this happen…..
The reverse side of an unattractive print. The white shadows are fascinating. This is destined to be a summer dress for my girl, and perhaps a skirt for me if I’m very lucky.
A dark grey slightly felted wool with laser cut petal-shaped holes, which I loved on the roll, imagined as a very simple lined coat, and am now scared of. Will the holes fray with wear? Will it be reduced to shreds in a year? I have considered top-stitching, which could be interesting, but it would ne waaaaay to fiddly.
I may wash a small sample and see what happens just for the fun of it.
Black and pinky/grey rectangular check in a textured and actually weirdly stretchy fabric. Destined to be a wrap-dress that is either going to be completely fabulous or kind of awful……. It was so cheap I couldn’t resist it for the experiment.
This one is seriously fabulous. Black and white honey-comb wool. On the reverse it looks like snakeskin. It rocks so utterly much. Destined to be two skirts – one modest and a-line and black and white, the flip-side snakeskin and assymetrical, perhaps with an underskirt poking out – longer at the back like Zara’s kangaroo skirt.
I walked away with an armful of fabric, took it home and thought – dull. My paintings are so colourful, and my clothes are getting more muted by the day. My favourite colours to wear are grey and navy, with red thrown in from time to time. It’s becoming a weird uniform. Not sure if I should be proud of myself or if I need a good shake-up. ;P
