I choose a brown color – it’s classic but not too elderly and it will have contrasting seams since the sewing thread typically is polyester and won’t take the dye. The lining of the jacket was white too and will stay white as well. I believe I will replace the white buttons, but need to have a look at them when the jacket and skirt are finshed and dry again.
the skirt is already dry and ironed while the jacket is still wet. I like the outcome of the color although I planed on a lighter version of the brown pictured on the dye package. And what really surprised me: the buttons have turned brown too! I think I will let them be where they are now. If they would have stayed completely white I would have replaced them with a contrasting color, maybe a nice moss green, but the light brown looks good.
