c. 1787 chemise: natural dyes

I’m not sure why it didn’t occur to me earlier, but I’m going to try my hand at natural dye with my silk sash for the chemise! I want a bright, sunny yellow, so I’m going to use turmeric. After doing some research this evening, I was satisfied with her recipe, so I’m going test it on Saturday. Wish me luck!

Stay curious,
