I don’t remember EXACTLY how this came to be.
I remember discussing with my team, new ways to play with scraps of fabric to make accessories, inspired by using leftover wool from the floor of the mill, to make Hugh Munro’s costume. One day, walking by the very talented Emily’s work table I found a square she had made of woven strips We decided to see if we could make it into a kind of fichu/collar.
That’s what I remember, but it is all a bit foggy.
I love this piece, and I believe it.
