Pintucks and Lace Dying Disappointments

First the good ... Pintucks!  Here are the pintucks on the dust ruffle of the petticoat.


Painful ... dying lace.  Sad, sad, sad...  The lace just didn't want to go to the "black as midnight, black as pitch, blacker then the foulest witch" that i was hoping for.  In the upper left corner is a swatch of the body fabric so you can see just how uncooperative the lace truly was.  Some day the lace will be pulled out of a box and have something done with it.  For now i want to pt it in the paper shredder, but am going to settle for the fabric storage box.
