Fashion Parade at the Exhibition (EFTAG)
My friend, Lorraine, very kindly modeled the Nuno-felted Dolman-sleeved jacket made for the fashion parade. Photos taken at the exhibition did not take very well. The nuno-felt was made before cutting out to form the jacket. 6 metres of tissue silk was used in it's construction. Natural coloured, Corriedale fleece, was the main wool applied over the tissue silk, with highlights of dyed merino, added later. Lorraine said it felt as light as a feather and would be extemely warm in winter.
