What a stunner!! Beautiful dress Daryl.
This is absolutely gorgeous. Well done!
That is really lovely, the colours, the drape, everything.
You have epitomized the WOW-factor, Daryl! You are an inspiration!
Daryl, Absolutely stunning! Love the flow and colors. You just keep getting better and better! Meg
Stupendous design. Everything is fabulous about this piece and it gives me a lot to ponder for my own work.
OMG! I should have known that was yours just by looking at it! It is sooooo beautiful! Will you please bring it to IWC so I can see it close up and personal? Did you use a collapse weave to coax the gathers at the shoulders or is it all done with sewing?
It is all done with sewing! I am planning to bring it to IWC. Right now it is in transit from the Surface Design Conference. Hopefully I'll get it back in time for Midwest!
Daryl, this is just fantastic, I love it. Wish I could see it in person. Can you please tell us more about it? What is a combination weave? Also what is dyed? You say the weft colour is plum, but it looks as though warp and weft are dyed. Daryl I just love it.
Daryl, this dress is absolutely stunning! When I first saw it, I thought for sure it must have been a gossamer creation by Lillian Whipple. Then I realized it was your clever use of color with your dyeing and striping that makes it so "airy". I was tickled to see this is actually a sett I can deal with!
I do hope you can display it in the Teacher's show at NEWS.
That is so beautiful, Daryl! I haven't seen something so beautiful since the days when I used to visit Julie's Artisan Gallery in NYC back in the 80's and the time when I was at a lecture by Jack Lenor Larson with a fashion show that featured Randy Darwell and his work. Thank you for posting here.
A combination weave consists of two or more structures side by side, such as a twill with a plain weave. Multiple shafts are needed, two for the plain weave and three or more for the twill. Only the warp is dyed, the weft is a single shuttle, solid plum weft. The fabric is fairly warp faced.
Wow! Fantastic work.
Wow. This is absolutely beautiful work. Really gorgeous! I'd love a closer look - is there any chance of larger pictures?
