Unmitigated Garment Disaster- Part 2 of 5

After flipping the piece to side two.



Pulling back the thick painter's plastic resist to reveal the silk side of side one. 
 
Adding a layer of trimmed-into-shape silk gauze...

 
...and connecting the front and back by folding roving over from side one to side two.

 
Laying out additional roving...

 
...in a more deliberate pattern this time...

 
...for the front of the garment.

 
The finished layout on side two.

 
After (rather awkwardly) flipping the piece from side one to side two...

...I added a layer of silk gauze to the 'naked' resist.

I then folded over the 'rays' of roving along the garment edges...

...from side one to side two (connecting them in the process).

More wool roving came next...

...but in a more thought-out pattern this time...

...creating the garment front.

Next time: actual felting begins.
