Pregnancy

The delicate process of creating and carrying new life, while overcoming personal and physical changes, inspired me to create this garment.

The simple silhouette of the dress perfectly fits the body allowing the hand-made details on the sleeves and the skirt to draw the attention. These details represent the fragility and the development of the new life – there are 9 hand-woven decorations attached to the lower part of the dress that symbolise the 9 months of the growth on an embryo. The sleeves are made out of thin netting filled with loose wool, creating complicated but delicate layers.  In addition to that there is the multifunctional hand-knitted hood that represents the new skills and adjustments that a mother has to develop by the time the baby is born.
