My adventure with fabric dye turned out great... I've got a black skirt again!
(I probably should have ironed it before taking a photo though. Never mind)
This weekend I'm tackling another make-do-and-mend project, giving this old vintage dress a new life:
Yes, I know it's gorgeous - that print is just so stunning, and it's just as lovely and floaty as it looks - but it really doesn't fit me properly so I've hardly worn it, it's a bit "aged" under the arms (eww) so it always had to be worn with a sweater on top anyway, and it's been languishing in my mending pile ever since the zip broke last year.
So this weekend it's being turned into a "new" skirt, just in time for summer. Pics tomorrow!
