OH MY.............stunning color.........and nice to learn regions have colors....looking for mine now.
the purple is dreamy! I like how the running stitch is hiding in the dress:)
oooooo seriously beautiful marksand tres flattering tones ....
I love the violet hues and prints you have captures! Beautiful! Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart

soooooo beautiful! It would be really interesting to see a display of garments from everywhere you have been. Something for your travel book someday???
really sweet and nice garment design too!
Is actually a variation on an Alabama Chanin pattern. I changed the neckline and drafted sleeves (there weren't any)
So pretty .... and wonderful leaf prints!
Such stunning color! Thanks for sharing it with us.
have no words for this beauty...............XXXm
This is wonderful :) May I ask what leaves you use and do you use any metal?India, I have just got your two wonderful books in the mail and started reading:) I was so much surprised, beacause they were much bigger than I thought! Enjoy the reading very, very much :)
Assorted windfalls and the magic of a rail side puddle
these shades of color seem mysterious and soft. lovely!
Alas, this frock went swimming with the book ("rail side")? The dress shape appears to have a very flattering cut.But what I'd really like to know...if I may be so bold to ask...*why* would your grandmother be very pleased?
As I think I may have mentioned when burbling excitedly about my bicycle....purple/violet/lilac were her favourite colours...
Somehow I missed that...thank you! I'd be hard pressed to stop peddling if I had one that looked like that.
i love Little Mountain's idea of a kind of travel book - the places and people that have been captured in your cloth through dyeing and what not. that would definitely be a great and interesting read! *soph
I like the soothing yet engaging quality of these colors.
love. love. (want).
What an absolutely stunning dress, I love the style and shape too but the colours and patterns....... have you worn it yet? jayne x
Thanks for your reply, I have just re-read my comment and I think I was over eager to reply, I love the colours and patterns too but it didn't sound right sorry. Anyway, I love everything about it and so glad it fits! jayne x
no dramas and thank you for swinging by and leaving a note :o)
That colour is so beautiful. I'm amazed at the detail of the leaves is so crisp.
