Forest Ferns

The Prima Jacket Pattern by Akasha is a very simple, easy to put together jacket.  It allows room to create and embellish.   This jacket began  with black fabric, ferns and an experiment in bleach discharge.  I chose the hand marbled fabric that complimented the discharged fabric.  Four different marbled designs of Chocolate  Brown, some scraps of hand dyed burnt orange and black for accent.  I constructed the fabric by attaching it to heavyweight flannel.  The ferns needed something to bring them out.  I found the solution by machine quilting the vein of the stems with gold thread.  All that was left was to cut out the pattern pieces and assembled the jacket.
