These where very obvious shapes they resemble leafs so I wanted something that would not be so obvious so I followed it up by doing a second one.
I used strips of leaf coloured material and netting over the top. This links to the linear designs I did earlier.
once I put these together I saw that they looked like patches. Patches work in a sequence!! I could link them together using an over lock machine to attach the patches together just like this...
I came up with some design Ideas here they are...
My first Idea is a patchwork top and layers of leafs for a skirt. It wouldn't be very wearable because the leafs would break and full off and would eventually decay completely.
My next idea is a leaf top and patch work skirt. The issue with this is that it could be quite time consuming and may take to long for me to complete in time.
I found a dress made by a blogger called Susan Lenz. She made dresses made from fake flowers and leafs. That she recycled from bins in a cemetery. I really like her dresses but I personally like the idea of using real leafs. Something that isn't going to ask forever, similar to Walter Masons work.
