Art-work dress

Firstly, I’m thrilled (!!!) my ‘Scarlet’ shorts, made it into print in the fab La Maison Victor magazine!

Enough boasting, but to celebrate I made the ‘Lora’ dress, by La Maison Victor, a lovely cut, modern yet with a retro touch.

I celebrated with an explosion of colours, inspired by a painting by Piero Dorazio:

Herewith some images from the painting session:

I used a ‘chinese ink painting’ brush, and the following opaque textile paints: Decor Fin by Talens and Palett by Panduro.

And the original Lora dress by LMV:

  5. Wow, super nice this dress! Love how you painted the lovely color dots on the dress, so unique, and especially nice with the yellow tights.

  6. I love this! What kind of paint did you use? And how did that react to the wash?

    • I used a ‘chinese ink painting’ brush, and the following opaque textile paints: Decor Fin by Talens and Palett by Panduro. I’ve actually post-poned washing this dress (haven’t had the opportunity to wear it a lot) but I’ve used these paints for years and they wash well. One just shouldn’t paint too thickly, or they will crumble a bit. Will you give it a try?

  7. Fantastic dress! I really love the painted pattern — that’s such a bold idea, and the result is beautiful!
