Colette Nutmeg in Ikat

I will be spending some time in the desert at the end of the month (*cough* burningman *cough*), and I wanted to create a version of Colette's Nutmeg separates that could withstand the dust and heat.

The Ikat fabric I found at Britex works perfectly -- it's sturdy, colorful, and surprisingly soft. I decided to convert it to a halter top, and made some modifications to the knickers (i.e. found a way to make them even shorter).

Finally, I made some hair clips out of goose feathers, sea shells, and other random trinkets I had lying around. Time to get my hippie on.
