My dyed and embroidered dress is at last finished.

This image is of a piece of embroidery half way up the front of the dress. This was a white dress made of non natural fibres and l was not sure if it wouild dye well. I dyed it with and in Ecu leaves and then embroidered it. I am very pleased with it. The first image is of the main dress.

 Next few images are of the hand-embroidered circles and other patterns l added to the bottom of the dress. This is many nights worth of slow work ..very peaceful and relaxing.

This is the top of the dress, embroidered and has a small clay button added to it.

The next two images are on the back of the dress.


  1. What wonderful work ! I must admit to not having the patience to create like this.

  2. I must admit mary l surprised myself!x thanks for the commentx lynda

  3. Oh, I love, love, love this! All those stitched circles, sort of reminds me of balloons (which I love). This is absolutely beautiful!

    I have been trying and trying to leave a comment on your most recent blog post, but it isn't letting me! I'm sure the trouble is on my end, but for whatever reason, I wanted you to know that I love your latest eco-dyeing and the lovey, soft earth tones you have created. You must have such fun wearing these items of clothing!
