On my mind for quite a while, has been a nuno-felted Butterfly Coat. I have made quick sketches at work, and while on vacation, but did not start the project until the wall art (in the background of the photo) was completed. I started with some fine silk chiffon in white and black. I spent a morning dying the white to orange. Then I began the many segments needed to produced the effect I had in mind. here is a quick peek at the work so far....
I am please with the first pieces. I need 7 individual pieces of nuno-felt, then a few hours to sew it into the floor length coat. It should be light and airy and kind of float around the body as I walk.
