Basic Skills Necessary:

  • love and interest for natural dyeing

Pattern Description:

This piece of silk georgette was first dyed in commercial turquoise dye, but I thought it was a bit too strong and wanted to soften the color a bit.
It was then dyed with plants and iron pieces, using the hot bundle natural dyeing technique, and I was amazed with the result. I absolutely loved it!
So I decided to share it with you.
I hope you have lots of fun trying out this technique.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • 230cm long and 114cm wide
