Gallery - #1033 Night & Day

Satin Dragonflies

I used Satin Peau for the shirt, pants and robe. The trim was done in Clouds Blue/Purple Batik Cotton.
The shirt and pants detailed with stamped Dragonfly Block for the collar, pocket and sleeve bands.
The robe, was painted, stamped, stenciled and embroidered with dragonflies.

Dewdrops make the perfect buttons.

The dragonflies (downloaded from the Threads website) were embroidered with Sulky variegated rayon on the bodies and coordinating solid rayon for the wings.

Dragonfly Block was used to stamp the fabric for the collar and bands.

Stamped and Stenciled Dragonflies are teamed up with hand painted "grasses".
The stems of the grasses were made with the edge of a piece of cardboard so they resemble bamboo!

After cutting out the pieces I marked where the embroidered dragonflies should go.


Serenity

I used Serenity Flannel for the shirt, pants and robe trim.

Shirt trim was done in Celtic Chain (Red for Malynda and Black for Jeremy).

For the robe, I used Red Cotton Sweatshirt Fleece and stamped it in Black Paint with Large Kanji (Serenity, Prosperity and Peace).

I'm sure you've noticed by now the length of their pants. This is by special request of the models, they both like them "extra long".


Malynda's PJ's are trimmed out in red, while Jeremy's were done with the same print in black.

We thought they looked like they were having to take a "time out".


Silk Dupioni

For this Night & Day I used Khaki Silk Dupioni for the shirt, and Gold Krinkle for the pants. The trim was done using the selvage of the krinkle fabric!.
The shirt was further embellished with leaf printing using ferns and
textile paints in olive, gold, and bronze. Maori Fern were the perfect button closure.
