Ronneby Or Umeå,...
Part of the “Sometimes you want to be a peacock” collection that I did in the spring of 2007 when I studied pattern construction at Tillskrarakademin in Gteborg.
I wove the fabric when I studied weaving at Gamleby Folkhgskola. I love orange and when I found orange silk at reduced price I bought it and decided to make something beautiful from it.
I’ve made countless versions of the sleeve, but in the end they worked very well, although I changed my original idea slightly.
The only problem with it is that the sleeves are very tight, not much movement for the arms.
Handwoven orange silk fabric and bluegreen silk fabric.
Git at Ateljé Git who sold me the yarn.
Elisabeth and Anne at Gamleby Folkhögskola for all the help with the weaving.
Gun and everyone at Tillskärarakademin in Göteborg, for all the help with the pattern and the sewing.
