pinafore

I have a stash of men’s shirts in all sorts of shapes, sizes and fabrics. I have taken the scissor challenge and chopped into them aka India Flints book Second Skin. India did show us at the last workshop I did in Stamford Valley. Alas the style is not for me I have too much bust for it to suit, that does not stop me trying it out Number One has found a home ( sorry no photos ) Number two is divine a silk shirt of excellent quality, and it is in the dye pot now.I have used some of the leaves from my journey south and some from my own  Euc Cinerea tree. While the pot is on I cannot boil one bundle it seems wasteful of time and energy so the rest of the baby cotton / wool vests are in, I have soya milk mordant them to see if I get a shift in the colour take up ?
