dc.description.abstract <p>This women's jacket combines a silhouette evokes the flexible folded shapes of Japanese origami with the surface design features characteristic of the ikat dye techniques. The goal of this project was to take a ready-to-wear garment to a higher level of design sophistication intended for women sized 16-20. Choosing locally produced, natural fibers and a low pollution dye method allows this product to appeal on the basis of sustainability as well as fit. Wool purchased from a Georgia rancher was scoured and spun by a woolen mill and hand-dyed using space-dye techniques to create an ikat effect. Sampling was used over successive iterations to determine the spacing of skeins in proportion to the dye vat in order to produce the desired shapes in the final border. A larger version of the motif was chosen for the central portion order to allow the space-dyed border to flow visually around the wearer.</p>
