Eco chic

 
Eco dyed upcycled cotton and lace jacket – some more of last Monday’s eco dyeing.

[Native cherry + copper dyepot; layered with eucalyptus leaves and ferns. Wrapped around an iron bar. Simmered for 5 hours (size – L).]

Luckily, native cherry grows on our land … 

 
Cotton cardigan reinvented with eco dyeing (native cherry + copper) and an added torn vintage silk trim. Goes well with the asymmetric cotton tunic I made from eco dyed fabrics a couple of weeks back!

I love the variety of greens it gives. The cardi was originally a pale mint; the dress fabrics were beige.

This week’s reveal

The eco dyed bundles are now unrolled, washed and ironed. I went for a subtle effect this time!  

 Nylon cami and half slip – eucalyptus and borax dye pot; eucalyptus leaves in the bundle.

  
Cotton drapey cardigan and nylon bustier; eucalyptus and iron/copper dye pot; iron nails, eucalyptus and blackberry leaves in the bundles.

 Cotton blend crochet scarf; eucalyptus and borax dye pot; eucalyptus and blackberry leaves in the bundle. Silk top and cotton scarf; top in a eucalyptus and borax dye pot (eucalyptus leaves in the bundle); scarf in a eucalyptus and copper/iron dyepot (eucalyptus and blackberry leaves in the bundle).   The bundles before they were unrolled (above and below).
