Anisacia Miller- "Cocoon Cloak"
Cocoon Cloak, 2021
Lace table cloth, cotton lace, synthetic lace, artificial pearls, Indian belt, thread
36 x 48x 3 inches
Thank you to my Nanna who gave me the tablecloth and for this time to come to design a cocoon with what I have available in my home. Upcycling all of the things in my house is really a project I have been doing for years.
I am not sure if she made the table cloth. She made everything by hand and this could have been. It is so wonderful to use all of the things that you have at home and put them all together and make a new sustainable piece of fashion.
This Cocoon is all hand stitched. It has a handmade belt from India that is attached at the back of the Cocoon. It can be worn in many ways. The garment is low cut in the back and can be switched around to have it low cut in the front with the pretty belt showing in the front.
The entire piece is handmade. It is hand-stitched except for the piece around the neck.
Please note: Due to differences in monitor settings, colors may appear slightly different on screen than in-person.
