The weather has been very kind today and we managed to get all of the velvet I have been working on dry. Tonight we packed the fat quarters ready for Brisbane. I think these worked out the best I have done for a long time. The colours are rich and vibrant and there is gorgeous contrast in most. I put two colours into each piece. Sometimes that just adds to the richness of the overall colour, sometimes it creates strong contrast and a lot of blended colours. I have one which is impossible to repeat where I put yellow, red and blue in. It is SO unpredictable. Anyway, I will load pictures here. Interested in your thoughts. I don’t think the photos are great. Due to the lustre of the velvet it can be difficult to photograph, but you can get the general idea of the colours. I will load them all on to the website tomorrow or the next day.
Here we go. Remember, these photos are a guide only. Every piece is different, so will have more or less of the colours on each piece. In no particular order:
There is one other colourway, but I completely stuffed up my recipe and ended up overdyeing the piece. It is gorgeous, but unrepeatable, so I won’t take photos of it. If you are in Brisbane, come and check it out. I nearly kept the three metres to make a dress so unique the fabric is. Anyway I am ready to move on from velvet. It has consumed me for three days.
