Sew Along - Refashion Runway - Week 5 Riverside

Sidste udfordring: Pantone Riverside blå.
Jeg havde samlet tøj sammen til at farve alligevel, og blå er en farve, jeg er ved at blive glad for igen, så det hele røg i farvebadet. Jeg brugte Dylon til vaskemaskine (nope, ingen procenter her):
Last challenge: Pantone Riverside blue. I had already collected some clothes to be dyed, and I begin to be fond of blue again, so it alle went in the blue dyebath. I used Dylon for washing mashine (and dont get paid to show this).

Herligt!
Awesome

En hvid T-shirt med blonde på forstykket i str. XL.
A white T-shirt with lace front ind size XL.

Den blev lige som jeg havde håbet.
It dyed just as I had hoped.


Så vrikkede jeg den ned om hofterne og målte, nålede og syede og nålede og syede....
I put it around my lower body and measured, and pinned, and stitched, and pinned, and stitched....

...indtil den var lige som jeg ville have den.
...untill it was just the way I wanted it to be.
 



En af mine mange hvide hørnederdele blev en mere brugbar marineblå.
One of my many white linen skirts became a more useful navy blue.

Denne kjole er bare så fin og klædelige på mig, men den dannebrogsrøde farve gjorde at den aldrig blev brugt. "Vi er røøde, vi er hviiiiide.".
Den endte med at blive en utrolig flot dyb, mættet bourgognerød (svært at se på billedet).
I love this dress, which is so comfortable and flattering. However it was the same bright red colour as our flag, and I looked like a sports fan wearing it.
Now it is a deep saturated burgundy red (hard to see in the photo)

En hvid top, jeg aldrig brugte, fik også en omgang. Den blev fin nok, bortset fra at blonden fik den underligste fesenrosa farve. Af med den og på med overdelen af en kjole, jeg havde liggende fra en tidligere omsyning. Jeg er vild med resultatet.
I white top, I never used, also got the blue treatment. It became fine, except the lace became an odd pale red. Off it went.l I replaced it with the upper part (neck, shoulders and sleeves) from a dress I once refashioned. I love the result.

Den blev sørme mørkeblå, man kan næsten ikke se det grå mønster. Nå, men det er stadig en fin blå farve.
I had hoped for the pattern to be still visible, but it is a nice blue, so it is ok.

Et specielt stykke tøj: En kjolecardigan, ligesom et twinset (den er altså købt sådan). Ideen var god nok, men det fungerede ikke for mig, så jeg klippede "kjolen" ud og lavede den om til et bælte.
A rather special garment: A dress and cardigan twinset. I bought it like that. The idea was good, but it didn't work for me, my chest was too large. I cut the "dress" out of the cardigan and remade the "dress" into a sash/fabric belt.

I saw you on Beth's Panetone Sew-a-long. I saw that you are from Denmark and that your name is Stine. I can't believe it! My grandmother was from Denmark and the only person I ever knew who went by Stine...........in Christine - by the time she was older is was Stinie. I love your work!
