Does two make a series? This is my second blouse done with natural dyes and for this one the half and half are marigolds and indigo.
I collected all the marigolds that were blooming…yellows, oranges in any combination and dyed part of the fabric. The fabric was linen from a couple of up cycled shirts. The front is the back and the back is pieced from sleeves and one front–I guess a quilter has to piece somewhere!!
I used an ikat method so that I could dye in a vat. The white line is where it was tied. To dye in the marigold vat, I used plastic and put half in a bag so that it wouldn’t get color when I dipped the whole piece. Then, I bagged the other half and dipped it in indigo.
