    Beautiful work! I love the classic lines of the design. You are amazing, getting such a perfect result dying fabric! What a lovely color! Does the fabric have any stretch? I struggle with what fabric to use to make slacks. I love to work with and wear natural fibers like linen and cotton and silk of course. But for pants I want something that’s not too sheer and not too stiff, and not too wrinkly, or clingy… Anyway congratulations on another amazing outfit! Looks great in your tropical paradise!

      Thanks so much Laura Jane! I was really lucky with the dyeing- it really is hard to get even color. The fabric doesn’t have any stretch but is really soft and comfortable. With the double layer the weight was perfect and opaque-even when it was the original white. I wore it all day with very little wrinkling too. Thanks again! :)

    Tres Chic! YSL would be so happy. The grey pants are divine and so sleek with the white shell. So right for your tropically planted yard. It looks like you can float through Summer!

  4. This is a such a lovely outfit Rebecca! You are an expert hand with natural fibers, for sure! The dye job is superb…subtle, but even rich colouration! I’d love to get into dying fabric, but just haven’t found the time. I remember tie dying t-shirts back when I was a kiddo.

      Thanks Sue! I really love sewing with natural fibers best- they just feel so lovely. I’m so happy to get back into dyeing myself. I haven’t done much this year since we were in the process of moving but it’s so much fun. You should definitely give it a try!
