Going Gray On Purpose

Hello Refashion Co-op. I thought this white shirt needed a total re-do so I decided to use some gray dye.


This white cotton shirt was a little old, a little yellowed, and a little blah.


I wanted to use the dye I had on hand. It was for synthetic fabric but I hoped it might work for cotton too. Even if it only worked a little, it would really help cover the yellow color tone of this shirt.


 It worked great! The color was much better, the fabric looked fresh and crisp. I made the shirt more narrow so it would fit a little better.


I connected those scraps into a long tube that I wanted to use as a belt.


I liked the shirt with the waist cinched in, it was a great tunic length.


Thanks for reading, for more pictures and details I Can Work With That.
