Cutting and Dying Fabric for Final Garment

 I chose to use satin back dupion for the main fabric because the dress was structured and the quality of the material was suitable for my 'couture' garment.
For the petals I had to cut and dye each one individually with pigment/brusho inks and then add darker tones with acrylic paint and watercolour paint. Previous to this project I hadn't dyed fabric before so I deciced I would use this technique this time around and it proved to be time consuming but worth it in the end! I also drafting the smaller petal pattern and repeated the same steps for the five petals which would be sewn into the collar.
