This upcycled pure silk top was pale pink originally; steamed for 2 hours after layering with red rhododendron flowers and red onion skins. The applique fabric was dyed in purple carrot water + alum, then layered with leaves and brown onion skins and steamed for 1.5 hours. Both were wrapped around a rusty trampoline spring.
Size – S

This is the colour you get on silk with the cooking water from purple carrots! Alum added; simmered for one hour and left to cool overnight before removal.
