Dyeing of the carnival coat was not a success.
Using iDye for wool, I dyed it, according to instruction, in the washing machine. The dye took irregularly, in great splotches. And I don’t mean ‘great’ (or ‘splotches’ for that matter) in a good way.
It’s now being thoroughly washed, so when dry, I can take it apart and copy the pattern. In defiance of my wardrobe refashion+ pledge to buy no new fabric but to work from the stash, the search is now on for some fab deep orange wool or jersey to recreate my beloved carnival coat.
The carnival coat is dead. Long live the new carnival coat.
Take it away Smokey.
