Inspired by the house dress, wrap aprons and lichen.

About this project

The house dress was often worn by women when dyeing yarns with lichen (crottle /crotal) in the Scottish Highlands & Islands. 

Traditionally the house dress had small repeat floral patterns.
I’m drawing crottle for a new housedress pattern.
