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 

Eco dying with purple carrots, raspberries and more
