Mazie has designed dresses for the three of us.
Because she doesn't take anything anything-but-seriously, we are making the dresses. Starting with yards and yards of white cotton fabric.
We each chose colors according to Mazie's design. Olive chose turquoise, Mazie chose pink, and mine will be ombré (if the Universe agrees.)
Olive's we tie dyed. (And I snuck a large scarf for me into her dyepot!)
Mazie's we didn't have the right color dye to do justice, so we will have to start again. I hated to make her wait another day for her fabric, but it was so washed out, not at all like her beautiful design.
One of the most difficult things to learn is that it's all a process. It's all layers. Sometimes we get it right on the first try, but often it takes another layer of effort to get to the desired result.
I wish I had taken an image of Mazie's first product, but I didn't. We decided to layer some pink over the red to brighten it up, but misread the label, and it was purple instead. Purple won't do. So this will be the fabric for my dress, and we will try again for the perfect pink.
