"Waratah in a Pocket" Jacket handmade by Neelam Singhal. Upcycled denim, corduroy, Shibori silk. Lining is Linen Shibori. The fabrics used in this jacket are all upcycled from jeans, shirt and a skirt. Each fabric was washed, ironed and then joined appropriately in the different places. This fabric layer was lined with a very thin muslin to give strength to corduroy and denim for the floral embroidery. I drew with a discharging agent the different flowers and then embroidered each with cotton embroidery yarns. The flora on the back yoke is from various countries, eg Sakura from Japan, Lotus from India, Pohutukawa from NZ. Front and back panels have OZ flora as that is my present and future. The jacket lining has Nui Shibori pattern in black colour of a train engine past and present. There are two side pockets for comfort. I really had lots of fun in making this jacket for you and hope you enjoy it as well.
