Yes, I took the plunge and decided to try my hand at dying fabric. The results weren’t exactly how I had envisioned them, but I’m really happy with the final result. In fact, the color turned out better than my original idea. So, I’m making a new gown for to wear for our Georgian Christmas Party. However, I’m hoping I can wear throughout the year and not only at Christmas. Here are the pictures so far.
The dyed fabric. It reminds me of a Granny Smith apple.
The overall shape of the gown.
The gown on the left is very similar to the color of both the main fabric and the trimmings I chose. I plan to use red silk ribbon and white lace around the neck line and sleeves, and a silk red sash around the waist.
It’s coming along rather quickly and I hope to have finished photos in the next couple of days.
