This just leaves the Green Felt (Fabric 3) and Yellow Lapel (Fabric 7).
Fabrics 3 and 7
Last time when we compared the Yellow, we found it to be too light, and needed to be warmer.
I got my trusty Pantone book out and have suggested Pantone 116 as a guide.
The Green was also too light, despite going through three rounds of lab dyes to get to that stage.
In an attempt to pull the colour closer, I again referred to my Pantone book and found 356 was a good guide to colour.
Well today the latest - fifth round - of swatches arrived.
The green is better too, but word has come back that it needs another tweak! I’m getting to a point now where I wish this was over - but if the job is worth doing, it’s worth doing right.
Just need to work out how to break the news to the dyers . . . .
