Alexis wore her show and tell last Monday. Why not? It was eye catching and stylish. She had felted fabric and made herself a really lovely tunic which sat properly, moved properly and fitted properly. Alexis confessed she doesn’t like to sew very much. Why would she if she can make garments like this with little or no sewing? The colours are well chosen and thoughtfully understated but make a visual impact. The movement of the lighter blue colours across the black and then the white designs is well conceived. It’s a beautiful tunic and suits Alexis well. She has used fine merino wool for this so that it produces a malleable fabric which is nice to wear. It’s actually good to see artistic felting used for something truly wearable as opposed to textile art which has display value but you cannot use it. Wearable art is as much a valuable skill and challenge.
