I'm slowly working my way through the backlog of tops I've bought at Goodwill! I love finding white shirts that totally change with a dye job and some adornment. This one started out as a gorgeous linen with some fun smocking - but a little boring in white. Unfortunately, I was so anxious to get started that I forgot to take a photo before it went through the dye bath! Here it is after being dyed with Dharma's Wedgewood Procion dye ....
If you're new to dying fabrics, see this past post here. Then I embroidered leaves at the places where the smocking came together, using a lazy daisy stitch and two strands of cotton floss, and added a pearl bead to each set of leaves.
Happy Creating! Deborah
