Starting with ordinary, plain white clothes, you can create your own personal style as easy as 1,2,3! Here are clothes and accessories for normal days and special days, for yoga training and leisure. Ingvild teaches you to paint, print and dye fabrics. How about trendy graffiti print jeans for the holidays or hand-painted satin shoes for a party?
This is something anyone can do, using the many easy techniques suggested.
You don’t need to be able to sew to personalise your clothes, if you start with white clothes which you either have already or can easily buy. It’s the techniques of colouring and dyeing which enable you to transform the garments. When Ingvild’s great creativity and her massive knowledge about colouring and personalising textiles are applied to them, your colourless garments undergo a radical change and become exciting!
Fargeglede contains four chapters:
Jeans, casual clothes and shoes from a palette of blue, lilac and turquoises. Graffiti print jeans and coloured trainers, cool tops and shirts.
Yoga and leisure garments in pink, peach and orange. Imagine turning up at the yoga class in your personal designer outfit! There is also a silk dress and a long jersey-dress as an ‘after-yoga outfit.’
Let the Sun Do the Job
Print blue and white, using the easy, exciting and almost magic technique of cyanotype from the early days of photography. UV light from the sun brings out an attractive shade of blue which you can use to create wonderful prints of feathers, flowers and whatever you fancy.
Deep Shades of Party Finery
Make your own party gear quickly and easily. Use deep colours, black and silver on bags, velvet dresses and silk scarves. And what about a pair of hand-painted satin shoes to go with them?
