Wool dress

I've made a wool felted dress for my daughter with roving and silk gauze. What do you think? I am super excited about the way it turned out.

That is really cool. I'd love to see it close up.

Re: Wool dress

And it fits her perfectly! I knit and have made many garments that fit (and a few that don't), but I'm always excited when things turn out well. Good job! :-)

Re: Wool dress

That is really unique and pretty!
Now I want a CLOSER close up of the rosettes.

Re: Wool dress

I will try to get some close up shots. Thanks for all your kind feedback I am thinking to sell these, made to order. It's really a beautiful medium that could be a wonderful keepsake. I should post in the WAHM area for ideas on what to do.

Re: Wool dress

Wow, this dress is wearable art - I love it! The color choices and contrasting textures - seriously amazing. I'd love a strapless dress made out of that for myself!! LOL

Well done!
