The "Other" Rainbow Swirl shirt

If you have watched my video demo on the Rainbow Swirl pattern, you might have wondered what I did with the shirt I started dyeing without first pre-soaking in Soda Ash solution... well, here it is:
I left it bound and let the yellow dye dry out; next I soda soaked it, squeezed out the excess soda ash solution and let it sit for a couple of days, then applied the dyes and batched as shown in the video. Just goes to show, goofs can be overcome!
