un bundled pinafore

I have tested some silk fabric I bought at the fabric store in Brisbane,  a silk / lycra mix with a lovely sheen and slight stretch.  One of my students used a piece at the workshop a couple of weeks ago and the outcome was a little disappointing ( I have bought 2 meters of this fabric ! ) I soaked the silk first in water and vinegar and layered it with leaves and sandwiched it in the copper plate, along with lids, leaves and more silk squares BINGO !!! I also had two silk pinafore aprons made from upcycled silk shirts in the same pot one is a copper colour and one baby pink…. (I was not sure of the out comes here….. but have been pleasantly surprised )
