GARDEN REVERIE


GARDEN REVERIE
Piece Unique
A luxurious embroidered shawl / stole
Hand-sewn and Hand Embroidered

// Sold Out //


An imaginary garden embroidered on precious up cycled silks



I created this shawl with an up-cycled Ikat silk , in green/yellow & deep purple/deep blue shades , with  gold threads . This wonderful and bright fabric was the base for the work.
I fixed it on a thick linen fabric , to be ready to be embroidered.


I made a large neckline / front line , in a wonderful up-cycled damask silk , woven with pale gold threads . 
This damask silk is lined with another up-cycled silk , in a bright yellow green color , tied & dyed .


The bottom of the neckline / front line , is a large embroidered ribbon in pink silk .
I also used this up-cycled ribbon to close the shawl .



This shawl is a patchwork of elements embroidered , cut on vintage silk saris , which are patiently hand-sewn .



Dimensions :
43 cm x 282 cm ( 32 cm fringes + 218 cm embroidered panel + 32 cm fringes )
17 inch x 111.3 inch ( 12.75 inch fringes  + 85.8 inch embroidered panel + 12.75 inch fringes )
Ribbons to close the shawl : one is 74 cm ( 29 inch ) , the other is 68 cm ( 27 inch )
 on 8 cm width ( 3.25 inch )



The lining , which is hand-sewn is made with 2 different up-cycled silks :
a pink / black Ikat and a yellow green / pink tie & dye .




The up-cycled elements embroidered are embellished by my own rustic wool embroideries .


Sometimes it is necessary to "destroy" to make it better : 
I had to take away all the original embroidery with beads , I didn't like the result with the rustic wool embroideries :)






Fringes are in wool , the same used for the embroideries .




You can also wear the shawl on one shoulder


And to close it on the side with the ribbons.


For information , I am a small girl ;)  1,59 cm / 5'2" .
For the photo session , I wear shoes 5" / 13 cm , to have a "standard" size !
