I am afraid I am a bit tardy, as most people already know. Commissions just aint my thing, even if something only takes a few minutes/hours to make, it can take me WEEKS (months) to get round to it.
As in this shirt for Daddy L.
He liked the previous one I did for him so much he instantly asked for another, so I have had this nice crisp shirt since the end of August. Ahh, tis only 3 months. It's not that bad!
The brief was 'red'. So I got some Tulip Red Dylon dye, which incidentally is more of a dark cerise pink - but he won't mind.
Holding the shirt at one side of the collar, I tied elastic band diagonally down it.
And dunked it in the dye for a few hours. Swishing and stirring now and then.
Then I gave it a rinse in cold water, and chucked it in the washing machine on a 40 degree wash.
I think he will look rather smart in this.
