eco dyed and stitched

sunny, breezy and luxurious silk top with elastic neckline

I made this sleeveless dress top for myself over the weekend. It is a simple design with an elastic neckline. The fabric is silk twill, a light weight material with a smooth and silky surface. The fabric was first eco-printed with Dyer’s chamomile flowers from our garden; then it was cut and sewn together into this breezy top. It is light and cooling–just perfect for the heat of summer. It is the latest addition to my stash of sustainable clothing (aka eco fashion) that I have been accumulating since I’d started this blog.
