Indigo Dyed Dress

Indigo Dyed Dress

I found this used (thrifted) dress at a used-clothing store on College Avenue in Oakland, CA. Made of 100% linen I knew it would be perfect for natural dye. I dyed this dress at the Indigo Dye Party, fixed a missing button, and added it to my wardrobe. I experimented with the “dip dye” technique but as the indigo dye vat has to stay covered–this technique was only partially successfully. I might try to re-dye this dress with another plant-based material and I might just leave it mottled as is.
