The first item was boyfriend cords from Eddie Bauer. They came out looking pretty good. I'll probably get more use out of them in the black than the old taupe-ish color.
I also dyed this motorcycle type fleece jacket from Eddie Bauer. It came out amazing. The hardware is brass, so I've been busy refashioning it to silver. I'm about 1/2 way done, as you can see in the after picture. The details stand out a lot more in the black dye, so I think it looks pretty awesome. It still looks gray here but it is BLACK.
This was a linen cardigan in gray from Talbots. It also came out looking very good. The buttons are a dark enough gray that I think they still look okay even with the new black color.
This pair of olive brownish shorts from Calvin Klein are now black with interesting light stitching. I may try to paint the buttons.
This Waverly J. Crew linen jacket was a black and white tweed. It just faded to gray on. I had to already wash this one to get rid of smoke smell (eBay) so I figured - what the heck? It came out GORGEOUS. With the light, I know it looks gray in the picture, but actually the whole thing dyed to a beautiful saturated black.
|Left pair: used to be gray.|
Right pair: used to be light brown.
The last two items were a dark gray cashmere scarf and these cargo crops. The cashmere scarf is darker now than it was -- it's almost a true black. The pants came a very nice black, with "contrast" stitching now, of course.
By the way, that's the green sweatshirt I dyed here. Doesn't it look great?! This picture shows it's true color better than the original one.
