First round of progress (Posted 2nd April 2013)
First part of progress started today. As I mentioned my mum is tackling the bulk of this due to my uni degree ending pretty soon and I really haven't got the time I'd like to dedicate to this! However whilst I'm home for Easter I'm lending a hand as best I can :) at the moment my main headache is getting the gradient dyed on to the skirt. I'm using jacquard dye-na-flow dyes and whilst they were a little pricey they where totally worth it. They work very similar to water colour paints and make it incredibly easy to achieve gradients. They're just a tad hard to control and I messed up quite afew times so I ended up having to divide my skirt on to three so that its more manageable.
Everything else seems to have been a breeze! We had a small issue with the roll size as initially they were a little too large but nothing that couldn't be fixed. Tomorrow we'll be battling the chest armour and getting all the gradient dye done!
