Currently busy working on an original scroll, with a Byzantine theme, which I chose to interpret using various pieces of historical cloisonné as my inspiration. The challenge for me is to find a way to create a visually balanced design without the aid of using a manuscript page for my inspiration, which, being a two dimensional, rectangular object, is easier to adapt...
popover dress is completed, and while there are a few minor changes I will make to the new draft, for future popovers, I am rather pleased with the outcome. The overdye worked out most excellently.
The "teal" color is a bit more of a turquoise green than a turquoise blue, which is actually good, as it is a tiny variation on the colors I already have, but perfectly acceptable. Indeed, I am considering if a few more garments in the teal/turquoise end of the spectrum would be welcome for that transitional season where summer turns to autumn, or where spring turns to summer...
A while back I was gifted with a dresslength of heavy cotton/linen in a turqoise/black shot weave, that might indeed make a colorful pinafore...hmmm... and there are a few printed cottons (all in the blue/navy/teal spectrum) that will someday turn into tops/blouses/tunics... I've some vague idea brewing of how to transmogrify the popover pattern into a tunic/top with actual sleeves...
