Sometimes you’re op-shopping with your mum and she convinces you that you should buy a big piece of fabric, despite its 1980s motel bedspread stylings, despite its swirly floral pattern in shades of plum and pink (ugh) and brown. Because, it’s cheap, it’s big, it’s cotton, and you could dye it.
I was thinking a olivey grassy green would improve things. Rit dye in Kelly Green was a good match from the colour on the box, but in truth it’s a much sweeter, bluer, more transparent green. Still a million times better and something I’m more likely to wear. Here shown nicely set off by a red dog.
