Sunflower Skirt

I finished my new skirt today and I am totally in love with it! Yes, it's available for sale at my etsy shop

I had a lot of fun making these sunflowers, but the best part is the dying process! The results are always such a pleasant surprise! When dying the skirt I use a process called low water immersion dying. The very simplified way to explain it is that it's when you scrunch the fabric into a tight container, pour dye all over it and walk away. When the dye has set, you pull it out and ta-da! Awesome results! 

You can read all about low water immersion dying at Paula Burch's dying page here.
