Eclectic Natural Printed dress 個人獨特裙子

It's a sunny summer day. 
Go natural, be myself.......
in a stable, greeting by the horse in a beautiful day...........

Not in a fashion trend but eclectic is my way. The day in a natural wrap with my own eco printed/ dyed "experiments". Having a good day in the north of the territories........

I've done lots of natural experiments with fabrics in many ways. To make use of my various scraps, I designed a simple loose dress just with a few panels, the front & back of botanical imprinted silk, two sides with turmeric dyed chiffon. Cut both down sides of the chiffon to sew the scraps of botanical imprinted silk. 
While I was thinking the next step, Mogi grabbed it for a nap......
   It's done, shoulders with folds, waist with strips. 

This is eclectic dress, either can be front or back but with different styles.
Tie the waist side strips to make ruffles movement.
With the loop and the twisted knot, wrap around to have folds in the front.
Such easy and simple to make a free size loose dress, I made without measurement. I'm no good in measurement or calculation but only done in instrict. Since I was a teenage my father bought me a Singer sewing machine which costed him a month's salary. He loved all of us. Today I have my hands to print, to make my own dress all credited to my beloved father.  He's in the Heaven I hope he knows I'm happy with the talent he gifted me. 
Thinking of him on Father's Day today.
