Fun with Fabric Dyes and 14″ Doll Overalls

I love using dyes on fabrics and wool.  Since Spring is just not cooperating with us I decided enough.  Mother Nature isn’t going to win.  I am going to cover my kitchen with Plastic bags and go for it.

I sewed up a couple pairs of White Jean OMG! Overalls. The Sewing pattern is from QTπ Doll Clothing in the size that fits the Wellie Wisher Dolls® or similar 14″ dolls.

According to the girls in my house I had to start with Purple.  We busted out the Purple dye. I managed to get a pretty good Ombré look.  Of course after rinsed again and totally dried they looked different.

This wasn’t as scary as I thought, so on to the next pair. I had shared this on my Facebook page. So a Doll friend suggested blues and yellows.

After all the rinsing and drying in the dryer.  I brought the Overalls back in the Sewing Studio and am now in the process of finishing them with Lace and buckles.

I see much more Ombré dying in my future.  What a great way to put that On of a Kind look to an outfit.

I am hoping to have these in my  Etsy Shop Next week.  Shhhhhh  I am sewing a couple more pairs of overalls.  My Son asked me do a red color.  I really need to try a pair in Pink.
