This post is titled:
Back in February, Sharon and I tried some shibori dyeing at home, just to prove to ourselves we could do it outside of the classroom. The fabric I dyed wound up at the bottom of a stack of things to sew, but productivity over the last few months has enabled me to work my way down to it.
The fabric was actually dyed twice. First in a golden yellow, then in a red that was almost magenta. The body and sleeve panels were prepared by sewing the fabric into a tube and sliding the tube down onto a pipe. The collar and overlap panels were prepared by twisting the fabric tightly and then allowing it to ply itself into a "rope". There's also a picture of the back.
