My mom recently observed that none of my refashions involve bright colors. Most are gray, black, or blue. I guess she has a point. Even when my clothes don't start out with one of those colors, I tend to dye them one of those colors. Oh well, at least I know what works for me! In this case, I took two pieces that weren't working and dyed them with RIT Denim Blue, with mixed results.
The boring khaki skirt turned a lovely sort of faded violet with the dye. A quick hem job was the only other thing it needed to be ready for spring, should spring ever arrive.
The pink-and-white plaid shirt didn't turn out quite as lovely. I was hoping for a blue background with purple stripes. Instead, I got a purple background with reddish stripes. I still think it is an improvement, though.
Since it is still snowing very steadily, I think I will try to sneak in one more winter refashion. Then, I promise, I will try to get in more colors for spring, Mom.
Thanks for reading!
