Fennel Silk: A Very Splendid Thing

I’ve had a very exciting time recently making a silk blouse for the lovely and enormously talented Niki at unifiedspace. Niki designed the fennel print cloth which is such a beautiful green (the photographs don’t really do it justice) and which was a joy to work. I’d like to have metres and billowing metres of it and waft around like Elizabeth Taylor (the later Richard Burton years)….

Niki and I live about 400 miles apart, not ideal for regular fittings so I posted this off into the ether with a churningly butterflied stomach, crossing everything in anticipation. It’s fine. Niki’s happy. And so am I.
