Today I will show you how I dyed two new garments and tomorrow I will show you the other three.
The upper stripes will be sewn with a single row of thread, pulled tight with rubber bands over. The lower section will be partitioned off with a running stitch pulled up in a clean diagonal line, then the fabric below will be crumpled up into a ball with rubber bands.
I weighed each piece, to know how much I could put in each dye bath. It's important to follow the instructions on whatever dye you are using.
