HANDWOVEN WRAPS AND UPCYCLED T SHIRT DRESSES
Handwoven wraps from wool and silk on a hundred year old loom.The combination of wool, mohair and silk give them drape, warmth and yet still light to wear.
The dresses beneath are constructed from good quality thrift store Tshirts and speak for themselves.
This linen dress was fashioned from a Vogue pattern and up cycled from a 1950’s tablecloth. It was constructed so the original edges of the cloth could become the hem and front opening. Vintage buttons from the same era were used.
