Mother of Seven, that's a brilliant idea!

Thank you for the advice, Mitza! It's been far too long since I've used my sewing machine.

@Naomi: It certainly does! If only someone would teach the fabric makers and dealers that God can't stand mixed fabrics. There has to be someone in the world who sells fabric that is pleasing to God. It would probably be really expensive and hard to find, though.

If you're locked in your menstrual hut and running low on thread, one trick you can do is created a frayed edge instead of a rolled hem, just by pulling out some threads.



Just don't go crazy with this, or you'll end up with a "hippie-dippy" (or even American Indian) look.

One of the advantages of a design like this

is that on particularly heavy days, if it gets stained, you can simply replace the stained section, and not destroy the whole skirt.

I know that I probably shouldn't be double posting, but I have another question. Is it possible to dye burlap? If it is, what kind of dye should I use and how would I go about dyeing it?

Default Re: Fabric Question

I believe you can, Sister, although if you want to go for some pale, pretty color like pink then you'd probably need something to strip the natural dark tan color out first. Otherwise it might come out kinda sludgey.

If you google "dying burlap", a lot of people seem to have had success. Indeed, it's encouraging to see how many women are using burlap these days!

I'm still trying to think of the color or colors that I want to use. Are there any colors that are not supposed to be worn? I looked in my Bible, but I couldn't find anything.

I think that Sister Mitza Lizalor was doing a project about colors described in the Bible. Oh, yes, here it is:

Smitten With Joy (children's palette competition)

I'm sure you can find inspiration in this thread! (Go to the last page to see the names of all colors). I'm sure any woman would look lovely in the "stinking carcass" or "inflammation" colors!

Hello Ladies of Landover!

I tell you there is soft spot in my heart for burlap as it is known in many countries as "hessian" which is from my home State of Hesse in Germany! I do not feel that it is very good for clothing as it is quite abrasive and was used as a "hairshirt" for self-punishment by many Catholics so this must be avoided.

Most handy for sandbags and there has been many floodings in Germany these months!

Default Re: Fabric Question

The harshness of burlap shouldn't be a major issue. Before use (before you even start sewing it) wash it at least 3 times with half the quantity of detergent you'd normally use, a little chlorine bleach and extra fabric softener. Between each wash, dry it in the dryer (expect lots of lint). After 3 washes, it will be much softer than when you started. And it won't have that dreadful smell.

Very useful information, Ma-of-7-soon-to-be-8! The breadth of knowledge of the Ladies of Landover never ceases to amaze me.

Slightly off-topic, did you all see the fabulous picture that Sister Mary Etheldreda posted of absolutely rocking the natural, undyed burlap look?

Yes Mrs Hun. Hopefully, this may give some of the ladies some inspiration. Burlap clothing need not be the dull drab garb that it sounds.

@Basilissa: What a wonderful suggestion! Those colors are quite lovely!

@Mother of Seven: First of all, I'd like to congratulate you on the future birth of your son! Your advice is greatly appreciated!

@Attila's Wife: That is a wonderful picture!

I'll start figuring out the colors that I want to use. Are there any Biblical requirements about dye colors or kinds? I've looked, but i haven't found anything. I figured I'd ask you ladies just in case my female mind somehow missed a passage about dyes.

Default Re: Fabric Question

I don't recall any actual taboos on any particular color. My only personal feeling on this one, Sister, is that you should keep it simple.

Exodus 26:1 Moreover thou shalt make the tabernacle with ten curtains of fine twined linen, and blue, and purple, and scarlet: with cherubims of cunning work shalt thou make them.

Now that's all very lovely in its place, but I'm guessing you don't want your husband to tell you that you look like a tabernacle curtain!

Thank you for the suggestion! Unfortunately, I have not found a True Christian™ husband, but I am sure that looking like a tabernacle curtain would be quite embarrassing.

Sister Esther,

Here is an easy guide my Grandmother for dyeing burlap. I also have her great recipe book as well!! Always happy to share it.

1. Prewash the burlap in hot water. Add 1/4 cup of Synthrapol, a type of washing detergent that removes sizing, . This step is particularly important if there is any chance the burlap has any sort of oil or dirt on it.

2.Mix the dye into warm water. Make a paste by mixing a small amount of warm water with the fiber reactive dye. Use a non-metallic utensil to combine the water with the dye. The result will be a thick, pasty consistency. Once the dye has dissolved, add 1 cup of warm water to the paste and stir until the paste has been evenly distributed into the warm water. Add all of the dye to the tub that you'll use to color the fabric and mix it thoroughly.
Dissolve non-iodized salt in a little water at a lukewarm temperature. Add the salt-water mixture to the dyeing tub, which may be a washing machine or any large container.

3.Place the fabric into the dyeing tub. Agitate the fabric and dye together for 20 minutes. This is where the use of a washing machine comes in handy, because it can be set to agitate to ensure the fabric is continuously stirred. Ensure that the water does not drain out of the dyeing tub before 20 minutes. I Use a utensil, such as a large wooden spoon, to stir the fabric in the dye gently.

4.Add the soda ash and water mixture to the tub, slowly. It is important that the fabric and dye are stirred continuously during this time. It takes about 15 minutes to add the soda ash in small increments to the tub. Take care not to pour the soda ash directly onto the fabric because it will lead to discoloration and uneven dyeing. After the soda ash has been added to the tub, continue to agitate the mixture of soda ash, fabric and dye together for 30 minutes to 1 hour.

5.Rinse out the excess dye from the burlap fabric. This can be done by running cool water over the dyed burlap until the water runs clear or by placing the fabric into washing machine’s rinse cycle multiple times. After the water runs clear from the burlap, wash the dyed burlap in the washing machine using hot water and Synthrapol detergent (easier to find these days).
Use 1 1/2 cups of salt and 1/6 cup of soda ash for every 1 1/2 gallons of water in your dye bath.

TIP: If the dye does not easily dissolve into the water, add 1 tablespoon of urea to a cup of warm water prior to adding the fabric to the dye.
