Did the hot pink and the green-blue ones yesterday and this morning. I’m a bit disappointed with the pink one–I had planned to use my pink knitted tutu with it, but the knitting is a bit too heavy and so it doesn’t drape well. I’m using the pink synthetic organza instead and have switched styles for the top to match.
I’ve also dyed the gold silk dupioni orange. It came out absolutely gorgeous! but the drape is different. It’s more supple now, without the crisp finish I associate with dupioni. So I’m having to switch the pattern to accommodate a more drapy fabric. (Since then I have looked it up and discovered that dupioni is dry-clean only; if you wash it you lose the stiffness and some of the sheen. Well, oh well–there was no way I was going to be able to dye it without getting it wet anyway, and the color is gorgeous.
I’m now working on cutting out the blue-green and the peacock tops. Working on a table is much harder if there’s a cat sitting on your fabric (and your pattern!).
