Yesterday was dye day and it appears to have gone very well ... :lol:
due to the amount of fabric we had to dye (11 mtrs) .i was afraid of trying to dye it all in the washing machine , not knowing how much water was going in the machine/the weight of the fabric when wet and how to stop the pre wash , ect....
So after discussions on FB of using wheely bins/washing machines ect ...dean decided on the option of the bath ( we have an enamel bath so no worry's about staining it )
We pre washed the material and after doing all the test samples over the past week , decided on a 3 taupe to 1 pearl grey mix, using Rit dye ( stirring for 1 hour in water as hot as we could get it .). we now have material that changes from brown/grey/mauve in different lights that we like and think is close (to the film images). Will post images below for your opinions.

Looking great. I hope it's ready soon as I need another mutiny to be part of.

Dean needs to add a few more hook and loops on the cape because of the weight of the cape.
