San Pedro De Mon...
I made this dress a year ago, and it was pure white silk chiffon and some lace at the top. Now it needs to be used again, so I decided to dye it with something eco-friendly, and choose to use coffe and tea. I had to undo the dress to be able to do it, and….belive it or not…..it went on very strong coffe and tea at least 8 times!!!! but did not take more color. The picture does not show it much…but I did it in a way that the color is stronger on the hem and open fronts and fades away to creamy color. Also, I had to take the lace apart, and dye the top in soft cream and the lace in stronger color. It took me many many hours!!!! but I like the way that it looks. It also has a chawl, and I use the same tecnique.
