i dreamt of a lemon & blueberry pastry last night / Juniper Dress (w/ pockets) / one-of-a-kind / hand-painted, hand-embroidered, & collaged
This is the Juniper Dress (w/ pockets): a one-of-a-kind, comfortable, unique dress for everyday wear.
-A thoughtful cascade of creativity posing as a dress.
-A stylish & non-boring addition to your wardrobe.
This particular Juniper Dress (w/ pockets) utilizes an expansive variety of color and technique. The flowy, blue centerpiece is a free-form, punch-rug hooking technique I love doing. It reminds me of a map of a twisting river. The pockets on this dress don't appear obvious at first glance since they are collaged like the rest of the dress. There are a few pieces of hand-painted fabric I collaged throughout, as well. The other pieces of fabric I used for collage on this dress are various Japanese fabrics. Also, the back of the dress utilizes a Japanese fabric I hand-painted on. There is a sprinkling of hand-embroidery on this dress, as well. Suffice it to say, I put a lot of detailed work into this piece :)
TIP/HOW I WEAR IT I wear my Juniper Dresses alone, or over leggings or tights (as pictured). Or over a long-sleeve top if it’s a particularly cold day. I especially enjoy wearing the Juniper Dress w/ a good pair of chunky boots.
HOW TO CARE FOR IT Gentle machine wash (or hand-wash) in cold / alone, or with like colors. Hang dry.
