1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Help please! I'm clueless! Dyeing or painting silk to achieve ombre effect?I.H! on: September 14, 2008 01:09:34 PM
Just entered Year 11 GCSE Textiles with a plan for an amazing dress, but totally lost already! I would like to achieve an effect of two colours bleeding/going into each other, sort of like the photos below:

The question is...how do I do it? What sort of dyes will I need to buy? Should I paint it by hand? If I do paint by hand, how can I ensure the go into each other smoothly and not all blotchy? Sorry for all the questions, jesus I should have thought about this earlier!  Tongue Roll Eyes

My fabric is 100% silk dupion, currently white in colour. I hope that there will be no white on it in the end. I'd like the colours to be quite vivid, it'll be turquoise and purple. I can show sketches if that would help. I would ask my teacher but she offered as much help as...er...a pineapple!
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / (please look) Making this strapless dress - ADVICE NEEDED! on: July 15, 2008 10:32:42 AM
I have some really nice fabric that I'd like to make this dress with, however I have no idea where to start! The only thing I know is that there is elastic around the waist and it is buttoned down the front. All the pictures below are the same thing that I want to make, just with different fabrics.
