Description

After the newspaper dress, i felt i had to continue taking advantage of my creativity so i decided to start dyeing some of my silks.
This was a plain white sandwashed silk fabric and this is the result of three stage dyeing with black, grey and aubergine.
It is a simple knee length dress with a circle skirt, tie belt and a gunmetal Peter Pan collar (quite heavy)
’Whaddya think?

    You have done an amazing job on dying the silk and the Peter Pan collar is beautiful and looks perfect with the silk.
