I don’t know about you, but I love indigo. However, I wanted to spice up some of my previously-dyed indigo pieces with some overdyeing. I tore each piece and just dyed half of it so I could see the difference. Then I folded, clamped, and scrunched the fabric.
Here are my results of each dyed and undyed piece with the fiber reactive dye color.
The golden yellow piece is my favorite, but then I liked the piece best before it was overdyed and I love yellow with indigo. Which is your favorite? Do you overdye?
Nice! I really need to get the indigo mixed and give this a try… just keep coming up with so many things to keep me busy! Thanks for reminding me… one of these days!
Judy, You are so busy! I need to mix up another batch soon too.
Wonderful job! Great looking fabric!
These turned out great, actually! I rather like them better! But hey…that’s just me!

Robbie, I agree. These were pieces that I wasn’t really happy with and wanted to see if I could improve them by overdyeing.
These are great – do you know why you should dye with indigo first then over dye with another colour? can you do it the other way round and over dye with indigo? Thanks
Vif, This was an experiment. Of course you can over dye with indigo. In fact, this summer I did that and here is a link to the post. I was so happy with my results! Thanks for dropping by. https://lyndaheines.blog/2019/08/24/over-dyeing-with-indigo/
Thanks for the link to your interesting blog it’s a great read!
Vif, You are so welcome. Lynda
