diy wardrobe week project #3
|/ staying late at work so snapped a few shots in my office /|
|/ those balloons are part of my costume for the halloween disco at school, hence staying late /|
in the meantime i thought i would add something a bit extra to this rather drab dress. i now call it my chromatography dress as the colours of the dye have separated out nicely into green, orange and black as they traveled up the skirt. i got this effect by putting the dye in a big bucket, then suspending the dress with just a couple inches of the hem hanging into the dye and leaving it for about an hour. then a quick rinse in cold water and tadaa! i also some fabric scraps in to dye over night, which meant i had little brown kitty paw prints all over my laundry room the next day. if aston weren't already black, i'm pretty sure he would have dyed himself brown!
