For this project I needed to create a choli that matched the saffron colored tassels in the belt. Looking at the color in the tassel I could see that it contained shades of yellow, orange and warm red with a tone that was vibrant, but, still somewhat muted.
A note on color matching-
Matching colors can be easy or difficult depending on a variety of factors including:
-one's ability to
see the base color components that make up specific complex colors
-color assortment of dyes readily available
-difficult colors.. certain colors are just plain hard to replicate!
I decided to acheive this color blend I would use a mix of yellow, wine and warm brown dyes.
It is always best to perform a test on a scrap first. I usually will try to keep little bits of the dyeable choli fabric around. If you let me know when you place your order that you would like a scrap piece I am always happy to put a piece in with your choli :)
Guessing about how many tests I might have to do, I cut 3 small scrap bits.
