Carmen Arguello - "Soifra Sun Cloak"
Siofra Sun Cloak, 2021
Assorted fabric, cotton lace fabric, cotton thread, thread, elastic
43 x 60 x 1 inches
The Siofra Sun Cloak (Gaelic pronounced: shee uh fra meaning: an elf) was made in two days by Carmen Arguello, an Orange Coast College Garment Construction first year student.
The cloak protects its wearer from the sun while still remaining cool and airy. Its soft fairytale look and feel helps to keep things lighthearted and whimsical during these trying times.
The Siofra Sun Cloak's versatility allows it to be worn on it's own, over a base layer or as a swimsuit cover up. The Fabric was found discarded at a local family run fabric store in the scrap bin and the elastic was pieced together from former projects. The Fabric appears to be a cotton lace, though this is not certain as it was unlabeled.
This Cloak was made with smiles, determination and curiosity. It was challenging but still so fun to create.
Please note: Due to differences in monitor settings, colors may appear slightly different on screen than in-person.
