Aldebaran

Casual styled with kimono styled sleeves and adjustable front lace-up for varied sizes.

Due to the fact that all garments are unique one-offs, i.e. not available in a range of sizes, I often design them to fit varied  bust sizes; small-medium and medium-large.  New styles being created often. garments with 'making' gallery give an idea of the style fit.

Aldebaran available in Shamanic Nights ETSY Shop

Robes and dressing gowns can be commissioned  with your own favourite old clothes fabrics or choose from my fabric collections:  Abundant collection Lilacs, Pinks, Purples, Reds, Reds-Pinks on Black, Peach, Grey, Blues, Turquoise.

Silk paintings are designer's own, on silk hand dyed from plants.  Painted designs, colour coordinated to patchwork prints, add to the uniqueness of each garment.  Newer garments will be more tabard style, giving focus on the painted panel.  I dye silk Ahimsa off-cuts acquired from an Irish fashion maker.  'Ahimsa' is 'peace silk' where the silk worms are allowed to continue their cycle; a thicker silk like thin cotton, which tends to result in paler colours after steaming.  Habotai shiny silk is also used which gives bright colours.

Many shades of gold and cream silk backgrounds are achieved with natural plant, seed and bark dyes: from author's own wild foraging and woad growing. Use 'Search' for plants: e.g. 'comfrey' 'logwood' etc for  author's plant dye processes experimented with so far: one for example with walnuts.
