For this chapter I've worked with suspended shapes using stitch methods. I've used a variety of sheers to produce a selection of samples that give the impression of floating shapes, using my historical research as inspiration.
Sample collection photographed on hand made paper
Scrim, silk organza, metallic organza, nylon sheer and beads.
Silk organza and layers of nylon sheer which were then slashed.5/3/4
Gold metalic organza as an underlay, with silk organza and sheer over the top.
All 3 floating layers worked from under a top layer of silk organza
A little silver lace was added for a bit of a lift.
