Indigo - The Last Hurrah!

I really love the way this french terry tunic came out. I think I'll be wearing it this fall as the weather cools!

This raw silk jacket and skirt were dipped together in order to insure they would be coordinating. I think this outfit will go into my closet to await some appropriate occasion - maybe an upcoming gallery opening . . .

Ok, this should be the last of the indigo dyeing for me for 2009. After this last group of fabrics and garments were dipped a single time each, the vat died what seemed like a natural death. The 5 gallon bucket will be sealed and retired to a corner of the workshop and we shall see what can be done with it next spring!
