I love the silk Archer I made for July but there was something so off about the color. I know something is not my color when I have nothing in my closet that goes with it. I even took it with me on a trip to High Fashion to find fabric for a pair of pants. Everything was either "yuck" or "meh..."
What to do?
Teal to the rescue! There is something SO satisfying about dunking a piece of silk into a boiling pot of acid dye. Having sandwashed this crepe de chine previously I had no fear about the dyeing process. My thoughts were "what's the worst that can happen? I'm not wearing it the way it is..."
And now I LOVE it and it will see lots of wear. I found that I couldn't focus on my next Archer with that emerald green nagging at me. What a difference a dye makes!
