delayed accomplishment- this is fashion because i say so(IV)

ff! the fabric. the warp from hell no mo'.
the whole process of dyeing and weaving, including computer mishaps,almost took a year. something like the escorial of textiles because of the time both took to get finished.
then came drafting the pattern because there was not enough width for the butterick pattern i intended to use.
and finally sewing the top.top2

i cut up a silk shibori scarf that was never going to go anywhere and used it as facing.
the fabric has iridescence and does not photograph well. it wears well though ^_^
now on with the rest of the drafting-sewing!
