Originally quilted by Dorothy Carveth in the 1970s, I repurposed this handmade quilt into a mid-length roomy Petunia coat with dropped shoulders. It has faux fur collar and cuffs, that you can adjust the length by rolling the fur in of itself, and it closes with 5 blue buttons.

Shoulders - 22" / 56cm
Maximum chest - 48" / 122cm
Length - 34" / 86cm
Sleeve Length - 19"-22" / 48-56cm

Danica is 5"5 and she wears a size small. Vintage overalls dress and t-shirt from Horse and Snake Vintage.

Made during my time as Artist in Residence at Kootenay School of Arts, at Selkirk College.

Naturally dyed with plants

All my socks and scrunchies are naturally dyed - which is a 4 day process. Each natural fibre needs to be scoured on day one, and then treated with a mordant the next day. Then its plant dyeing time, which usualy takes a couple more days!

Each dye bath can be used a number of times, giving lighter and lighter shades until it is exhausted. Then the spent plants end up in my compost. Plant dyeing saves water and says a big no thank you to synthetic nasties that pollute waterways.
