i made this completely from scratch- the dress is made from hand dyed rayon.

its had 3 baths- turquoise>light green > orange (which turned it all brown)

the front hem is shorter than the back- im in so much love with this dress- i couldnt bear to part with it.
its rare i keep things for myself- but i couldnt let this one go Smiley

sooo pretty and perfect for warmer weather (if it ever arrives  Wink)!
Do you have a huge pot for boiling out? Whenever I try to iron out pieces like this, the wax goes to unwaxed areas and looks kinda yucky Tongue. I might need to buy a big cheap pot & try boiling.

thanks Smiley



i just use a giant lobster pot to boil it out- i never iron.
my rule of thumb is at least 3 minutes in boiling water- then immediately into a HOT washload with a heap of soap. the wax boils pretty good out of the rayon i think....


and yep- i used a tjanting. paintbrush too. Smiley
