- Got a dye question for everyone....
I found this fabric (very very very cheap) which is a soft cotton, but
dyed oddly. It's dyed medium green on the top, light green in the center
and dark green on the top. Is this period at all? I don't even know
where to start on this one.
(If not then it does have other options for use...)

- That's not a period style as far as I know, at least in Europe. Is there
any way you could overdye it with a dark color that might mute the contrast?

medieval Japanese garment in the Kyoto Costume Museum collection. This
woman is wearing a sort of wrapping skirt called a mobakama and it has
a fade-to-white dye effect on it.

isn't quite as noticable so it almost look like it was dyed in dye on
the selevages but the center didn't quite get in it.
