Here are some of my favourite sources for natural dyeing, fashion, and sewing. Some are books, some are links (sites, blogs, videos, etc.), some are series I listen to while working, and some I just plain find inspiring!
*note: I have included links to where you can find items for purchase.
NATURAL DYE BOOKS:
Eco Colour: Botanical Dyes for Beautiful Textiles – India Flint (my top rated natural dye books as it discusses alternative dye methods and tests as well as taking an in-depth look at mordants.)
NATURAL DYE VIDEO LINKS:
Sasha Duerr discussing natural dyes. (I have talked about this video before in a post, I find it truly inspiring and makes me a bit envious).
Rebecca Burgess discussing her 150 mile wardrobe. (I have come to love this video and have watched it many times and have thought about how I could introduce some of the ideas into my wardrobe).
FASHION INSPIRATION LINKS:
Channel 2015 Spring-Summer Collection being made (I love tambour embroidery and would every much like to learn to do it).
Christian Dior 2010 – 2011 Fall-Winter Collection on the runway.
Channel 2011 – 2012 Pre-Fall Collection on the runway.
CRAFT LEARNING VIDEOS:
