Whole new wardobe (sort of)
This morning I had a really Good sort out of my wardrobe with the intention of chucking things out. Well I have some really nice tops and a cheesecloth skirt that had seen better days. They are great clothes but just a little drab now so.............................................. I have put them into the washing machine with a packet of Tulip Red dye. Because they are different shades of deep pink and purple they will look completely different when they come out. I also threw a little cropped shrug type cardigan in to see if it will take the dye. I was surprised to see that it has though to a lesser degree than the rest of the stuff. Tis swirling around in the machine as I type. The skirt used to be kind of dip dyed shades of beige through to light brown and I must have had it for at least ten years. . A couple of years ago I dyed it a dark cerise pink and now it will be Tulip Red. I shall have a whole new wardrobe for the cost of a packet of dye. the dye incidentally was lurking in the garage in a box that I sorted from under the sink last year. I have a few different colours in there from my 'dyeing patch'. Did I ever tell you that I went through a patch of changing the colour of all my stuff?????? It was great fun and I am so pleased that I spotted the dye yesterday or my old clothes would have been chucked out this morning.
