♫ ♪ Still Life

When I was in a phase of dyeing fabrics, I wanted to dye this floral print into mustard yellow.. The cotton fabric was find from remnant bin, only about 1m of length.. Originally white dominated the print, with red and black as other colors.. I made a mistake while buying the textile dye, I liked the color on the package, ignoring the color name – orange.. Once again I used Deka L textile dye , dyed the fabric and some cotton eyelet trim in washing machine.. I was a bit surprised when I saw the bright orange outcome.. I love orange, and it looked better than before..

Before dyeing the fabric, I had a plan to make a kind of baby-doll dress, combining the black cotton for bust part and floral fabric for skirt.. The pattern used for bust part is #118 from Burda 06/2010.. The skirt is just gathered.. I also added the eyelet trim.. Thought it would be a nice touch..

    That’s a really sweet result. Orange is the new black!

      thanks :) I’m a big fan of Orange is the new black.. Strange how it didn’t cross my mind while I was writing about the dress :)
