Dying corset satin

I've been experimenting ...

If my 'Tulip' dylon machine dye wasn't too keen on the white polycotton ...

It was positivly smitten with my white satin ..

and so am I! Just look at it! ...

It makes me ooooh and ahhhhhh every time I look at it - and not without a great deal of stroking ..

Next post I shall show you, step by step, what i've done with it ..


  1. Oh fab! There's nothing like a good dyeing session is there? I like both shades of your tulip pink. But the satin is truly amazing. I will be reaching for some dye soon as I need to make my minimal wardrobe of clothes somewhat more co-ordinated now that I cannot buy anything new!
    Can't wait to see what you've made...

  2. Just dropping by to say 'thanks' for beautiful parcel received from you this week. The corset kit looks wonderful and I can't wait to get started on it.


    PS. Fabulous colour on the satin!

  3. Phwoar that's lovely. What are you going to use it for, or is it just for stroking purposes :)

  5. Yes, oooooooohhhhhhh is all I can say! No, I can also say GORGEOUS!

  6. Ooooh delicious! I can't wait to see what loveliness you make with it!

  7. Both colours are gorgeous! I've just read Bend the Rules with Fabric and am itching to start playing around with some dye! Can't wait to see what you use them for.
