Almost New Year’s Eve

A Textile to Celebrate New Years’ Eve.

This began as what I thought was a “scarf” that Indian women wear over their chest for modesty sake. I planned to wear it as a scarf. However, it was huge, and the silk taffeta was slippery and not crushable. I tried to wear it but was always swallowed up in it; or it was slipping off. I later found out it was a scarf to be worn over an outstretched arm. It would look nice that way, but I wonder how one would do anything but pose with it.

I loved it so decided to make it narrower and shorter by making some wide pleats. I tacked them down with red tailor’s tacks. As it progressed, more and more pleats were made until it came to scroll size. I discovered the back side had these nice ruffles.

Here you can see why I had to have it. Think of all the tying for the ikat to make the border.


The border all the way around was ikat-tied as well as the red parts!


Here’s a side view.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
