hi, I really like this dress it's simple and pretty Cheesy

You mentioned something about natural dyes? well i have done a little bit of study with white linen and onion skins using copper coins as something to set the dye. I used both white and red onion skins and both worked surprisingly well. I also used beetroot as it's a bright purpleish red which worked well. I don't have photographs but it was just a suggestion as most historic dyes are either hard to get hold of or have to be fixed with stale urine....yuck!

Hope this helps you and i am aware i went on a rant...hehe, sorry!

Great work!

Thanks for the tips! I will try using onion skins, I've read about them before and I've always got onions at home. And yes, I know about the urine part... I don't think there is a need to be THAT historically correct Smiley.

Lovely! Looks like you're heading out to a renaissance fair or just stepped out of a book! That green is beautiful, what dying agent did you use for that color?

Thank you! I used an artificial fabric dye, the brand is called Guarani and it's the only fabric dye that you can find here in Brazil, at least here in Rio. It comes in powder form and you have to dissolve it in hot water and "cook" the fabric for half an hour. Sorry if this doesn't help much, I'm sure these kind of dyes are also sold where you live.

This is absolutely gorgeous! I love the colour of green you got... do you remember which dye it was? I may use your pattern to make a modern-take on the dress. Cheesy

I adore those elvish/medievil type clothing.  I must make my own.  I just hope mine turn out as good as yours!  yours is so beautiful. Cheesy

Want to learn to crochet or knit?  I have a ton of extra crochet hooks & circular knitting needles.  Will throw in some pattern books and yarn for anyone interested in a swap.

Great job!! I'm very impressed-- and thanks for the tut!  I've been toying with the idea of making a costume for the next Renaissance Fair... perhaps I will. Smiley

... has anyone seen my shoes? I kicked them off in a fit of joy.
