Fun to play with eco dyeing and the Lagerstroemia speciosa is my fav these days. I dyed the knit silk jersey with Lac then printed with the flowers and leaves.
I like the tube width jersey. Just printed the front main pattern and little on the back then make a garment as I wish......
With small amount of merino wool I made this nuno felt seamless and no sewing dress - a reversible textural garment.
Top with little merino wool
The reversed side of textured surface, goes with a removable cowl neck of the same material.
Since it's light silk jersey, prints on both sides looks almost the same.
The back of the same dress, textural surface of nuno felt effect.
Nuno felt making with tube width silk jersey is simple and easy as no hem is needed.
Eco prints on both sides looks almost the same.
Now still lots of blooming Lagerstroemia speciosa.
Will have more ideas of prints to play with.
