Almost Ombre Coat

 
This is a coat I made by mistake last year, but get lots of comments when I wear it. 

It started out as a beige coat from Walmart.  I dip dyed the bottom yellow and let it dry.


Then a layer of orange (and let it dry).

 
Then dyed the whole coat red.  The buttons and stitching stayed beige.
 
 
I have two other beige trenchcoats for work, but I find myself reaching for this one often.  I must like orangey-red.

This is such a great idea! I even love it when it's just beige and yellow :) I'm always so afraid of dyeing fabrics, it's so permanent...
