Once I worked the front with my hands and my new electric car buffer (thank you Mary Papaj), I flipped it and created the back of the dress. Then some rolling, more with the electric car buffer and then some fulling and voila...THE REVEAL (Drum roll):
|Ready to party with my new dress and coordinated leggings and tee shirt. I'm wearing a lapis necklace, silver bracelets and earring, blue shoes, blue toe nail polish and even blue eye glasses!
|I used a portion of the shibori dyed prefelt as the main attraction in the bodice. I cut up the shibori balls and used them sparingly on the front.
I shibori tied and indigo dyed a pair of white cotton/spandex leggings that I bought on Dharma Trading. These tights are OK but a bit saggy. I'm on the look out for some other white leggings with more stretch. None the less, they look adorable with the dress.
