Plaid silk dress
Linda Evans made this dress to wear to her daughter's wedding in 2009. She searched all over Auckland for the right fabric, finally deciding on the plaid silk. "I had no idea how I was going to make it up. So after days of looking at it I finally came up with the idea of using it on the bias and then the ideas just flowed." Handworked detail on a garment is a typical finishing touch for Linda. She chose autumn leaves for the autumn wedding, and added an insect brooch amongst the leaves. To go with the dress, Linda made a brown fur stole, a tan clutch purse and she dyed some gloves brown to match.
