from pink to green
I wondered perhaps if there would be a colour change from washing my attempt at natural dying with an enzyme laundry powder. Guess what? there sure was. Now I know how to make green!
I didn't rinse the dye solution out before hanging the dress to dry and I think this is the reason for the unevenness of the pink. Not to worry, a bit of bleach and we're back to square one. I've since gone and bought a packet of pink dye. I think this will give me more of the brightness of colour I have in mind for this dress anyway.
It was a fun experiment and I will give it another go some time. The flat certainly smelt lovely with all of those roses boiling away on the stove.
