Wearables

I have been playing around with this idea for a while. To create wearables using my landscape patchwork techniques.


My process takes a while. I think about it, experiment in my head, look at fabrics and then begin to play.


I am sorting piles of scraps and fabrics again, and this morning found some narrow summer strip pieces

and a used black mens button down shirt that I had deconstructed last month and it was waiting to be used in a project.

I cut the black fabric into strips

Experimented with color placement and sat down to sew

This is the piece that I created this morning



It could be a wave landscape art piece

But I have other plans for it. A front panel for a vest or a jacket. It falls nicely

And is perfect on the back.

Now that I see that the weight of the fabric on a flannel base is not too heavy its time to do some more experimenting, I envision a vest, jacket and coat.
