I hand-wove this dress using traditional Turkish rug weaving techniques with hand-spun and dyed merino/angora yarn. I implemented my newly acquired shape building and pulled warp techniques and was able to weave the entire dress in one piece (adding darts) on the loom without having to cut any shapes out after.
My inspiration came from this Vancouver sky photo I took and played around with in Photoshop. I choose to create a dress as an exploration of the boundaries of what inspires us to dress the way we do. Since cloud formations and the changing colours and shapes in the sky drive me to be creative in other mediums, I wondered if it would be SO crazy to create a sky garment.
