Shibori Vat Friday!

While the indigo vat from the workshop a few weeks ago was still active I decided to dye some pieces of linen to make a long sleeved top now that the weather is (almost) cooling down. The long thin strip is for a band to go around the bottom and the other panel will become one of the sleeves. The sleeve panels were dip dyed so that they remained white at the top.

The lovely pattern on the sleeve panel was created using good old rubber bands and the rectangular markings on the band were created using narrow pieces of fibre board. The main part of the top will be plain white. I’ll be sure to model this for you all when it is stitched!!!
