Bamboo dress

I drafted the pattern for this dress to my measurements and sewed it up in some soft bamboo fabric. I dyed the fabric using logwood extract in a low concentration to get this light colour. Natural dyeing produces such pretty results with real depth, since there are slight variations in how the dye has taken across the fabric with some slightly lighter and darker areas. I think I'll wear this dress lots in the Spring!
