to avoid a lot of waste material I decided to research how I could use my scraps.
for my final piece I started brainstorming some ideas, and came to the decision to create a series of dresses\ garments inspired by my colour scheme and spring time.
Using natural dyes and shop bought bleach, I wanted to create my own fabrics as I thought it would give me more flexibility with my creations.
I created my own fabrics by printing patterns onto them with both natural printing tools I.E. apples, pears and lino printing which I carved designs into.
I started off by dressing a mannequin in my dresses and outfits, but soon decided that i would rather see them on a live body/person.
