Abstract print jacket & long skirt

Potter Anneke Borren worked with another artist to make this two-piece ensemble. Anneke bought raw silk and cut out the pattern she wanted to make. She then gave the fabric pieces to Robert Franken who painted them with German dye. Anneke says she she is not a professional sewer but this garment and three other collaborations with Robert are still in great condition. "It's wonderful fun to be within one of Robert's paintings!"
