Gradation Dyeing of Cotton

For several years I have created yards of fabric that have been dyed in gradiation of color.  I used black which is the sum of all colors.  Photography shows it slightly brown. In reality, the color ranges from light grey to a very dark grey and green.
 From the bottom, this is four of the dyed pieces, the lightest value at the bottom,  They are 9 x 45 in size.  When I surge them together or sew them on the machine, I get interesting effects.

Here is part of a skirt I surged together.  The skirt has a zipper.  It is my simple design but I love it.
This is the skirt back.   There are more photos on my Etsy shop.
