First trial, was fabric dying with tumeric. It was so much fun! Here are some images of the process:
|Step 2. 15 minutes before the fabric was ready, I mixed 8 cups of water with 50g of tumeric and let simmer.|
|Step 4. I rinsed the fabric until it was virtually clear and then hung to dry.|
|Step 5. I sewed the dress together. I cut the fabric before I put it in the pot to reduce the amount of fabric to dye. I bought thread to match after dying.|
Unfortunately, today is tragically dreary and the thought of wearing this sunny dress seems wildly inappropriate. I couldn't even take my grey top off for the sake of the photos. So I'm afraid this will have to sit in storage until later in the year. Next time I might try dying some blacks and browns.
