Linen Tunic Take II
But I never wore it. (This was years ago). It looks something the dress Cora is wearing on the cover of the Downton Abbey Season One DVD. And it wasn't really my goal to look like an Edwardian matron.
So I took off the trim and dyed it with Rit dye. I used Petal Pink with just a touch of Tangerine Orange (could maybe have added more orange, but the first time I mixed up a batch, the dye looked really orange-y). I'm finally happy with the result. Let's see if I actually wear it! (By the way, both the tunic and these pants had to be let out in the intervening years!)
