Continuing my Mood Indigo collection, I am adding new outfits.
Adding new fabrics and new ideas, I elaborated on the new designs, yet tried to keep the same spirit of Japanese influence on the designs.
Hakama Red is a combination of ink jet printed silks and hand painted fabrics.
The Hakama pants are made of hand printed silk dupioni.
Inspired by Japanese block print, I made a stamp and using textile red dye I stamped the fabric.
The pants are lined with white china silk, has a wide waist band that wraps around the waist and ties in the front.
Under the pants there are tight fit leggings in a tie dye indigo pattern.
The shirt is made of white china silk, snaps in the front and decorated with silver metalic buttons. The shirt is long kind of a tunic, has slits at the side seams.
The jacket is made of quilted hand silk dupioni.
As with the pants, I created a stamp and stamped the fabric to add an element of block print.
The jacket is lined with inkjet printed silk.
Doll and shoes are not included.
