I've done this before as well on lace trim I had lying round-gave the piece I was making it a bit of character. It does leave a really great,dingey heirloomed affect.

you're welcome sea of stitches, Alliecat, softgrey


sasuga softgrey
that looks so beautiful!

apparently you'd drink that orzo just like coffee.
with dripolator etc.
and it is not as strong as coffee and tea.



just remembered in the late 90's someone at CdG was telling me that some of Helmut Lang jeans were done with tea in order to look antiqued with faded part lightly browned.
actually the inside seemed the color of tea all over.

^now I wonder if Prada used tea in her spring '06 collection too. A lot of the dresses had these same tea/coffee colours and gave the impression of antique (especially the pockets of the grey dresses, which were beaded with wooden beads).

Orza is a rice shaped pasta but is also the name of a beverage made out of roasted barley.

Inspired by Softie's tea staining efforts, I decided to give it a go as well....
I didn't want a strong colour so I only left the fabric in for about an hour or so. I used PG Tips (best tea for dunking digestive biscuits I tells ya!)

I used an old school shirt, some antique doillies and an Edwardian cotton collar to make this shirt thing....
