Overdying a Skirty....the sad skirty turned happy :D Added Action Shots

I got this yarn custom dyed and I apparently had a brain fart bc it just did NOT jive like I thought it would LOL. SOOO the skirty sat around here forever on FSOT and spots with no one wanting to love it. SOOOOO I overdyed it...it is now a very happy skirty..with a few flaws that will get much love.
Before....


After...


then the butt I messed up by letting it hit the bottom of the pan It looks a little worse here than what it really is


She wasn't co operating and was pulling down my makeshift background but I managed to grab some action shots


still not real pretty on the butt but not really noticeable from far away....close up you can still see it

Glad you were able to make it useful. I like the lace work you did on the edge.

Thank you for turning my vision into a reality..next time I need to try to figure out how to use paint shop or something to see if the colors will actually look good together

It definately turned out different than either of us were expecting, I don't think this could have been forseen...esp since even in the skien it looked really pretty. Strange how that happened, it's a gorgeous skirty now though !
