Dye another day

After years of dyeing fabric for leotards , Lynne and I are working with a fabric mill to produce our own custom Batsuit colored leotard fabric! It's a supplex type fabric that is soft, quick dry and breathable.

The costume designer was quoted saying that he wanted the color to reflect how the color was printed in the comics and not a run of the mill grey color. It is quite a unique color.

We will make the leotards and tights in-house but we are also talking with dancewear companies to help us produce our own label! Exciting times ahead!!!

Lab dip sample colors back from the fabric mill.
It's a new experience for me to see this color on a Supplex type fabric instead of the old 100% nylon.

Closer and closer!
Chuck...

Color looks great! Does top swatch/ A swatch have more blue? Hard to see in these pix.
