Inspired to make ruffs recently
So I made something with epaulettes! Some kind of dancing body harness with dangly raindrops instead of tassels and a rainbow fringe around the shoulder pads.
Alligator stitch provided the texture for the epaulettes. Used a basic amigurumi technique to shape the raindrops. There’s a couple of silver ribbon ties with raindrops that tie under the armpits to keep the chest piece in place during movements.
It’s easy to wash and comfortable, I would love to get some feedback about how it stands up to being worn during circus acts or performances, and flow arts techniques like hooping, fans and poi 🎆🎇🌌 I feel my art is made to be part of a greater art, a performance of life! Excited to see what the future holds for it.
Also featured; mushroom waterbottle! Nice little matching accessory to go with the rest of the look. Wool matches wool though, so that keeps it simple.
