Newest Shibori Kosode

Back in February, Sharon and I tried some shibori dyeing at home, just to prove to ourselves we could do it outside of the classroom. The fabric I dyed wound up at the bottom of a stack of things to sew, but productivity over the last few months has enabled me to work my way down to it.

Red Shibori Kosode

The fabric was actually dyed twice. First in a golden yellow, then in a red that was almost magenta. The body and sleeve panels were prepared by sewing the fabric into a tube and sliding the tube down onto a pipe. The collar and overlap panels were prepared by twisting the fabric tightly and then allowing it to ply itself into a "rope". There's also a picture of the back.
