Liberty is well known for doing menswear stuff in florals and paisley and have been doing it for year and years.


I would gladly wear some of the stuff from Bless AW13. (No 48)

Wrong thread?

Anyone have experience overdyeing something in indigo? Is the process difficult?

Thinking about overdyeing a blue linen jacket, if it matters.

I have over-dyed a lot of fabrics over the years. Liquid provides a more even consistency than powdered dye in my experience. Do not let them sit too long in the dye bath either; most commercial dyes have some type of chemical in them that weakens the existing dye you will be going over the top of, and if you leave the garment submerged too long it can create unattractive burn patches throughout.

Thanks!

Are there any advantages to using powdered dyes?

In order to get a really deep indigo color, would it be better then to do multiple, short dips, rather than letting the garment sit in the bath for a while? Or would doing that also risk getting burn patches?

Also, the thing I'm hoping to dye is kind of expensive. Would it be a better idea to practice on a bunch of old t-shirts first? FWIW, those would be cotton and this thing I'm eventually hoping to dye is pure linen.

Powder seems cheaper usually and has more colours available. For indigo you won't need to worry about colour range. Different materials react in their own way per dye so practicing on some cotton tees might not help much. I'd practice on something linen if you can first and would definitely do multiple short baths over a long soak.

 

If you can't practice first then get liquid indigo and take your time and prep the garments and the dye bath before submerging. Make sure the bath is regularly agitated, do not just leave it sitting. Follow the instructions exactly and it is better to go too short than too long. You can always re-dye if it is not dark enough.

 

It is a fun activity to do, but very messy and challenging to get right. Good luck.

Is there any way to change my username? I've loathed it for years, it was actually my AIM handle from way back in middle school. It's also stupidly my first name and the first letter of my last name, and I'd like to reduce the odds of getting doxxed as much as I can.

I think you can PM Fok and he can make it happen
