The lengths of fabric were created from whole cones and then using dressmaking and cut and sew techniques, garment pieces were cut from the fabric once steamed and pressed. The pieces were sewn together using overlocking machines. The final garments were cordinating collections of jackets, tops, skirts, dresses and shorts, all fine knit and with beatiful soft drape and weights suitable for the climate.
Animal designs were handpainted onto some tops using fabric paints but I didn't manage to get a good photo. Here are a few samples of what I did manage to capture.
