A year ago I bought a vintage dress at an antique market in the small village Nora. The fabric of the dress was bleached and had some stains, despite that I just couldn´t resist it.

But I haven´t worn it. So I decided to try to dye the dress. The risks were evident, it could shrink and the fabric state could be even worse.

Still, I put the dear old dress – In a Pot.

I had to stir and stir to make the dye even.

The experiment was a true sucess!

I have spent several hours by the lamp to finish the embroidery in the technique couching. It is a very old technique, used in many work of arts through the ages. The letters are formed by an old golden thread, each one took about 45 minutes to embroid.

The gift for my friend is now completed!

Beauty is a Responsibility
