The fabric for the dress has been made with mohair from Miranda the goat.
Miranda is owned by Louise who runs Howden House bed and breakfast in Tiverton (

The mohair was layered between silk organza and water soluble fabric then stitched on my small Janome sewing machine. In all it took about four days of free motion stitching to create the fabric which was then pinned inside a duvet cover and put through a gentle wash cycle to remove the water soluble fabric (and some of the mud etc. on the fleece!)

The dress was then made up using a 1960s pattern rescued from a scrap store.

Thanks to Fran for modelling the dress on a cold December day.
