An adventure in ice dyeing (tutorial included!)

I’d recently been obsessing over some tie dye lounge sets made by the gorgeous Jenny and Louise of Cut One Pair. All those pastels had me wanting a set of my own!

Many years ago I promised my sisters that should they ever get married, I’d make them their wedding dresses. I don’t think I ever quite imagined actually making them though! But when my little sister got engaged I knew I had to get my wedding dress designer/ maker hat on and get on with it! […]
