Since they had already developed some yellowish spots, I thought I'd embrace it and make them completely yellow!
I used RIT dyes in Golden Yellow and Tangerine (just a splash). I dyed two pairs of gloves in total, but I forgot to take "before" photos of the second pair. I really like how they turned out:
The shorter pair is a bit too small for me (they might have been too small before, but I think they the hot water dye also shrank them a bit) and there are a few popped seams that I need to fix:
I might end up selling them on Etsy. But the embroidered gloves I'm keeping. I love them!
|I think dyeing them makes the embroidery - and especially the beading - more dramatic.|
I wore them with my new Straw Bonnet for a recent Fall photo shoot, as seen above.
