Nuno Felted Dress

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I hand dyed this entire project. The silk skirt of the dress is actually made up of two separate pieces of silk measuring 44x44 square inches. Each was dyed a different shade of jade/turquoise. The coolest thing though was the ombre effect I got where the skirt meets the bodice of the dress. The color fades from turquoise to a umber brown to the rust of the bodice. I am not a professional dyer, in fact I am somewhat of am amateur, so I am very proud of the way this dress came out! :)
