My nuno felt skirt!

My nuno felt skirt!

I thought it was about time that I uploaded some images of the nuno mosaic skirt that I made during German felter Sigrid Bannier’s visit to Ireland during August.

The main body of the skirt is made from four cotton gauze nuno mosaic panels and the cummerbund section around the waist is also nuno felt, this time hand dyed merino felted into hand dyed silk chiffon.  Thanks to Sigrid and her expert sewing skills the panels are stitched to just above knee level and then the bottom of the skirt swishes and swings out beautifully when worn giving a very comfortable and interesting fit!

The nuno neck wrap that I designed earlier in the year to match some of my linen clothes is made from the same silk and merino.  Sigrid liked it thrown around the neck exposing both the silk and wool textures at the same time, I prefer it with just the silk side showing but it is nice to have the option!

    Fantastic work. I love the colors of the wool and how they give gorgeous texture felted on the silk. Lovely.

    Wow! The skirt is fabulous! I wish I had known about the course because I think the key is in sewing the panels properly so the skirt hangs well. Well done!!

    Are you going up to the Knit & Stitch???

    This is still my favorite piece. I re-read this blog entry and am wondering, when you nuno felt it seems that you only put wool on one side of the silk. Ummm I will try such today since we seem to be still snowed in.

    This hangs beautifully!
    I am making a skirt for my final project – could you let me know how she stitched the panels?
    Warm wishes
