This full circle skirt is an original piece of artwork designed by Linda Ayre. It is entirely hand painted from white 100% silk crepe de chine (see below*). The design includes lilies and bird of paradise flowers which are specially designed to fill the circular cut and fullness of the skirt.
Limited edition. Only two skirts were painted at the time it was produced and this is one of those two. The waistband measures 28″ and can be altered to a larger measurement. It is ankle length and could be shortened without cutting into the design.
*The picture below demonstrates how this type of artwork is painted onto a flat piece of plain silk with dyes. The silk is tightly pinned onto a frames to hold it, It takes many hours to plan out and paint. Then the two painted silk panels are steamed to fix the dyes. Finally the washed fabric can be handmade into this circular skirt design.
I take commissions for custom artwork framed and on garments. Please call to discuss details.
