70’s denim blue.
I can think of two possible explanations for the unexpected color:
1. I didn’t leave the garment in the dye bath long enough (I made a timing error and the washer started draining after 15 minutes instead of the recommended 30), so the blue dye penetrated but the yellow dye didn’t.
I’m leaning towards explanation #2.
Vest, Old Navy (swapped and dyed). Dress, London Times (hand-me-down). Scarf, Gap (I think). Shoes, Colin Stuart. Bag, Franco Sarto. Earrings, Jana’s Designs.
I may try to dye it dark green, again, and defeat the gremlins.
