I had the skirt in my refashion pile forever. My plan was to dye it so that I would have a solid black skirt that would be a versatile item in my wardrobe. So I prepared the skirt and tossed into a boiling pot of Rit black dye. I also had a lighweight gauzy scarf that I havent worn because pink is not my color so I decided to throw it into the dye bath too.
The outcome was not what I wanted because the end result was purple and not black. I think I will use the skirt for other projects as the print feels a bit young for me. I do like how the scarf turned out, so it is not a total loss.
