Title:Ecoprinted shirt
Date:Feb 2021
Original Size: fits 36 inch bust
Notes: Upcycled cotton/wool shirt, ecoprinted on Caroline Nixon's Jan-Feb 2021 course. The shirt had faded over the years, and was dolman sleeved and a bit wide on the shoulders. I took it apart, and dipped the fabric sections in a weak iron solution, then ecoprinted them with herb Robert, mirroring the back with an iron blanket on one side, putting an iron blanket between the two sections (and two groups of leaves) on the front, and mirroring the two sleeves with no iron blanket. There was a certain amount of creasing, but I am happy with the result, and it has given the shirt a new lease of life
