Today is warm and lovely and the indigo vat is happy. So, ALL of the garments are being dipped! Well, not the petticoats. They are not made yet and all they will require is a weak vat to knock the color back a bit.
The indigo will wash off my legs pretty well. But, I am wondering about my new New Balance shoes! Oh well. A girl needs to have comfortable work shoes, which in my case means that they will look like trash most of their useful life.
I will dip the garments a third time, maybe even a fourth.. WYSIWYG does not apply to indigo. Wet, freshly oxidized indigo is many shades darker than the final color.
WEARING MY AGE
I have received a grant from the Jerome Foundation to work on a project that I have called "Wearing My Age."
