Hollyhocks Garden (nuno-felted summer dress)

The dress was cut from a nun-felted scarf and reconnected again into a summer dress. It was designed based on my childhood memories of my Grandmother's garden in the Ukraine. It reconnects me with a happy place to be.

Materials and Techniques:
Prefelt was made with finest Merino 18 micron, with silk , viscose fibres, hand-dyed silk tissues. Then is was cut in shapes and felted into a scarf using the finest silk fabrics. 
Because of the large design, it was not good as a scarf, so I have decided to cut it in order to make a dress. And in the end, it benefits the outcome.
