Spring Greens!

Here's Spring in her new clothes. A top and skirt, ready and waiting for a bit of embellishment!

The background fabric is calico (muslin) dyed with dilute silk paints. The decoration is strips of dyed muslin (scrim) cut with pinking shears and machine stitched on with a zigzag stitch. There is also some fancy machine embroidery yarn zigzagged onto the top and around the edges of the top I have laced the machine top-stitching with stranded cotton.

Thank you Kay for your comments in my blog. Spring Greens is lovely. I love the expression on her face. It is such a lovely impish expression.
