TWO FOR THE ROAD

Red Lantern Jacket

A photo of the “Red Paper Lantern” Medusa jellyfish was the impetus for this red ombré jacket. Several types of fleece were chosen for their luster and depth of color. The unusual buttons were locally sourced, with the addition of silk topstitch thread to stabilize the folds and overall fit.

 

Smoky Green Jacket  

For this jacket the same resist (see The Process) pattern was used as for the “Red Lantern”. It too features a blend of several fleece types. Wild silk inlay adds contrast as well as a delicate linear quality.
