The result of dying a section of the silk wedding dress using tea. Above is the bundle I wrapped. The photo below is the unwrapped bundle. The bottom photo is a close-up of the wrapped/folded pattern.
The tea has coloured the silk beautifully; a subtle golden shade. The wrapping/folding, has given a nice pattern. I don't want to iron it, and risk losing the lovely creases. They quite shimmer in the light.
