So skirt with jumper, black boots and.. ... scarf.....it needs a scarf knotted at the side of the neck and the ends floating in the breeze. I used to get this look with just hair but you have to be properly young and not just tell everyone that you don't feel your age to get away with hair long enough to have a life of its own on the breeze!! Sadly sadly I had it cut away as the grey took over and have been lost with scarves ever since. So the scarf is drawn and painted and the colours matched. And the design emerges. I love all stages of making my scarves but the painting stage is the highlight as the dyes have such a mind of their own and love to go where they are not wanted. I think it was the chromatography experiments with ink and blotting paper in First Year comprehensive school Chemistry lessons. I just never got over the diffusion of dyes on a substrate. Watching the colours flow and separate. So every time I paint on silk I do a stroke and wait watching the dyes spread until they hit the wax barrier. The wet dyes are so rich and solid that I wish I could keep them. But I cannot and they must be dried and fixed and washed and so the finished piece is a pale shadow of the mind's eye but still a work of art and surprising because I made it.
So swishy skirt is now a "outfit" with a flourish!
