First attempt using an ancient dye source

Latest eco dyed silk/cotton dress on display outside Gone Rustic today. Weld (dyers rocket) in the dyepot; various leaves and iron nails in the bundle.
All of the clothes I eco dye are vintage/retro. I look for quality and detail, as well as lovely fabric. This dress met all these requirements!
