Joy Malm "Kowloon"
Joy used black linen to fashion this elegant coat. The front and back panels were embellished with black embroidery from her Bernina 180.
Further embroidery is found along the bands and cuffs. Stunning!
I had a wonderful time working on this sample. Great fabric, fun stamps!
I used a gradation of hand dyed fabrics entitled "Desert Flowers", and stamped it with a Large Swirland Ric-Rac stamps.
Although you can't see it here, the lining was stamped with a Super Size "Pine" in a soft celadon color by mixing Silver Lace with just a drop of Olive Green.
To complete the ensemble Taipei Trousers in a middle shade of the gradation!
The panels of the coat were constructed by sewing 6" squares of all 8 colors of the gradated fabric,
which was first stamped with the Large Swirl, then again with the Ric-Rac stamp in radiating lines.
The Bands and Cuffs were topstitched in a zigzag pattern to mimic the ric-rac stamp.
