Gray, red, and orange skirts were all ombre dyed in a red-brown RIT dye bath and while not all skirts took the dye well, they took some. Then all the skirts and aprons were distressed using acrylic paint with sponges and dry brushing techniques. 

Leg wraps were distressed by Allison Jones as well.
