Love does not alter….Indigo dyeing…

I have had a rethink on my shirt to be a coat….last year when I started on this project I was in a very different place both in location and in mind…now I have been exposed to new techniques…new inspiration…new friends…things are in a bit if a jumble…but the mist will clear…new creations will emerge….
