I upcycled a cream dupioni silk shawl I wore to my wedding by making it into a dress with lace accents and synthetic organza over the shoulders. I designed the dress using element from my favorite patterns. But the dress ended up looking too bridal, so I decided to tie-dye it!
I love Japanese tie-dye, shibori, so tried this technique on the dress. I intended the color to be bright/blood red, but it ended up a soft peach.
I have more on how I did this on my blog Daughter Fish
