Untying is always a surprise

dyed olivia
Even though I've tied plenty of starry mandalas, it's still a thrill to untie them to see what my dyeing has created.

This dress is a custom order for a friend.  Her daughter had a dyed Quiara top which has long been outgrown.  Now her little sister is wearing it.  Her mum wanted a dress that was dyed in similar colours as the top.  And I suggested the Farbenmix Olivia dress with a mandala on the side.  Her daughter is getting to an age where she is becoming more self conscious, so I thought a design front and centre wouldn't be the best option.  I personally love have the design dyed on the side.  It looks the same back and front.
