When I saw this original 1980’s jacket by Gold Coast designer Trudie Fischer in an op shop I knew it was perfect for revamping. The jacket is organza and I have overlayed it with 17 micron Merino wool and a mix of 15% merino and silk. I have then added Bamboo Fibre, Tussa Silk and Soy Fibre. The pieces of guipure lace and embroidery have been covered with a cob web layer of wool. The whole piece has then been hand felted using the wet felting process. Size is medium.
Fire destroys but Ash can be beautiful.
