eco dyeing transformation

did some more eco dyeing this week …

a vintage cotton nightdress in a hydrangea dyepot with copper mordant



a short nylon half-slip in a jasmine dyepot with copper mordant

plus a long nylon half-slip in the same pot as the nightdress



aiming for yellows and greens, with some purple and/or black from the rusty nails inside the bundles … the linen thread used to wrap the layered bundles also transformed into a lovely green
