    Hello Everyone,

    I want to know your thoughts and feedback on my fabric dye project for a ESB MOW flight suit. After reading all the talk threads and tips here on TDH, I decided to give it a try.

    The whole step by step process can be found here (56 pictures):
    https://plus.google.com/u/0/photos/1...35800580584385

    Here are some end result samples. I will post pictures of the entire flight suit after it completes its hang drying.
    On the left is my MOW fabric dye project. On the right is BobaMaker's spats (as is from the maker himself). I used BobaMaker's flight suit as my color palette.
    After the fabric dye was complete, I put the entire flight suit into the washer using cold water. After one wash, I gave everything a hang dry.
    The pouches and spats were the first ones to dry this morning (hang dry overnight).

    I'm using my best camera to take accurate pictures and best lighting. From far away, it appears to be grayish blue. Up close, it appears to be more grey with blue tint.

    The funny part about this project was that I kept thinking about Lando Calrissian's cape and shirt. When the flight suit was under going the dye process, it looked like he's cape. LOL!

    Think it looks really good man. Looks like you've nailed it. Spats with ESB is a terrible thing. Don't give in to the ROTJ look.....

    Thanks Brandon! I borrowed them for the color reference only.

    Thanks Syllander! I'm definitely working on the ESB look. Feels good to know I'm working towards the right direction on fabric dye!

    Here are the pictures of the finished project after one day of hang drying. My wife and I are happy with the results. Please let us know what you think. If the color is acceptable, I will post the fabric dye recipe here. Thank you! Please excuse the shadowing in some of the pictures. Our living room lights had created shadows while taking pictures this morning.
