Lylah’s Tallit


Lylah’s grandmother came to me with an idea for Lylah’s tallit. She had a photo of Lylah leaping/dancing on the beach, and wanted to turn it into a scene for Lylah’s tallit. Lylah’s favorite colors are blues. The body is of a powder blue dupioni silk that fringes a medium blue, and the corners and atarah are a royal blue, as is the silhouette of Lylah on the beach.

We added a few seagulls, a sandpiper and cattails to the beach, and I figured out how to “make” foam, by stitching on a silk organza.
