This is a simple shirt that I made for lounging around. It is made of plain white muslin. I have some specific shorts that I want it to got with. The problem is that the white color does not coordinate well. I have seen and read about tea staining and I have always wanted to try it. I thought that this would be the perfect opportunity. I practiced it on some scraps of fabric, which I will be using in another project, and I liked the result. Therefore I brewed some tea bags, 8 total, and dunked my shirt into the tea. I let it sit overnight and then just rinsed with water and washed the shirt. Here is the result. I hope that you can see the subtle difference. There is not a dramatic color change – it is subtle but the new color of the shirt goes so well with the shorts in the picture.
The shorts are a green and off white color. The shirt blends so well.
I am still working on the Vogue outfit. I have finished the pants and I am working on another pair of them because I like them so much. The top is 85% finished. I have decided to try something else that is new. I will be taking photos of some of the steps to share with you. Must go now to get to work on the Vogue outfit top.
Till next time!
