I find surface pattern Fascinating. Whether it’s manmade or natural. I have a ‘gallery’ FULL of inspirational pattern and colour. My vision, when I designed and created my first Cut Couture styles in white linen, was to provide a ‘blank canvas’ on which you, the maker, can dye, paint, applique, embroider or print colour and pattern, to create your own unique wearable art.
Now that the concept is up and running I will be delving back into my bank of photographic pattern for inspiration to create a range of wearable art linen pieces to sell along side my ready to sew and colour kits. I am excited to say I have a couple of collaborations with textile artists lined up for the months ahead. Stay tuned for info’ and images….this may take a little time, but slow and steady wins the race!
As Salador Dali said…”Have no fear of perfection – you’ll never reach it” …so why not have a go yourself? Produce your own Daliesque wearable art on the blank panels of a pre-cut ready to dye clothing kit. Then sew them together following my YouTube instructions. Or simply sew then tie dye with one of my dye kits.
