Ronneby Or Umeå,...
This is actually a part of a larger project. I had made four ceramic animals and they inspired four different garments. The other three garments are made in other techniques.
This dolman was inspired by a goat. Kashmir hair comes from kashmir goats. Dolmans was popular in the middle of the 19th century, they were sometimes made of kashmir shawls. It’s sort of a cape with sleeves. I love the shape of the dolmans, so I wanted one for myself.
Wool fabric. Kashmir fabric at the edges. Silk and kashmir yarn was used to sew the kashmir fabric to the dolman.
My boyfriend for inspiring me to make the ceramic animals in the first place.
My mother for helping with the fitting.
