I've struggled so much in finding a black dye that actually dyes black. So far I've had blacks that dye blue, blacks that dye green and blacks that dye purple. Does no one make an actual honest-to-god black dye???
Anyway, I switched gears this weekend and I think I've found a solution to my black dye problem. I've been rushing like a madwoman all week trying to get some samples finished and sent out to NY for a magazine shoot, so you can imagine my excitement when this final piece actually worked out the way I wanted. As usual, I used a bound resist technique on a pattern I'm working on for Spring 2012. I'm digging the kindof decayed flapper vibe this piece has. Wanna see a shot of the back?
How about the whole front?
A detail shot?
Wanna see it on a human body? (surprise, it's me, I have no head)
Why not put a belt on it?
Dresses are fun. You can wear them.
