Making the Katsura Shadows Shift Dress

Once the fabric has been digitally printed it goes through many processes, layering of fabrics and being needle-punched to combine them.


Hexagons are cut from the needle-punched fabric and assembled on a backing cloth, hexagons sized to precisely fit the pattern.


The patchwork of hexagons are then stitched in place through a top layer which is cut back to reveal the needle-punched fabric.
