Last summer and this winter Priscilla visited India and brought back wonderful sari fabrics -- two layers that are sewn together with rows of hand stitching.
Priscilla selected one to make a jacket from for herself, and started by adding some colorful fabric strips.
I forgot to take a picture of my fabrics before I started, but found a woven black fabric in my stash of fabrics from Priscilla's other trips, along with a couple of thin green and red strips, to use with my sari fabric.
The jacket isn't lined, but needed shoulder pads, which Priscilla pinned into place. The front band is a soft black corduroy fabric.
The studio was built by New Energy Works (Timberframers, Housewrights & Joiners) as an addition to the west end of our existing house. The timberframe structure is 23 x 33' and was built using reclaimed douglas fir timbers. The interior cabinetry was made from reclaimed rustic beech, and the countertops
from Australian Jarrah wood. The construction started in April, and we moved into the studio in August 2007.
