So here’s Part 2. I never did show you what this lovely piece of silk turned into. If you’ve read Silk Kaftans in Pink, Fuchsia and Burgundy Part 1, you will know that I created a silk in the batik technique with various shades of pink, fuchsia and burgundy.
It was left to dry thoroughly, then I rolled it up in paper on a metal pole and then suspended it for 3 hours in a steam bath.
When it came out, I washed it thoroughly and gave it a good iron to remove all the creases.
But I’m sure you’re keen to see how it looks now.
It’s been transformed into a one-of-a-kind silk kaftan and these pictures here give you an idea of what it’s like.
These pictures have been taken outdoors which allows for a pretty accurate representation of the colours.
I love how it looks and am looking forward to designing some more lengths of silk to make some more of these highly individualised pieces.
