That’s it, I give up. The universe clearly wants me to work exclusively in silk and wool.
The striped olive green fabric? $22 for the fabric, $6 in dye, most of my afternoon. The forest green? $7 of fabric, $5 of dye, four days. The blue-green? $5 of fabric, maybe $10 of dye, ten minutes. I’m so mad. (I may end up hitting it with a little more green to keep from going too teal, but we’ll see how the black look first)
The wool was $19/yd (sob sob) and took me two and a half hours to dye but I’m not sure it’s actually possible to get a more exact color match for that fucked up shade of light salmon.
