I did mine myself and it was, by far, the easiest DIY I’ve done thus far.  I bought a plastic tote and put it in my bathtub.  I filled it halfway with the hottest water out of the tap.  I heated up a few pots of water to raise the temp (hot water helps the dye work better) and dumped those in, too.  I soaked my crinoline in water from the tap and set it aside.  I put 2 bottles of RIT dye in my tote (I made mine navy) and then I made sure it was mixed up (I stirred it with a spare plastic hanger.  Totally low tech.). 

Next, I put on some rubber gloves and submerged my crinoline and stirred it for about 45 minutes (Not the whole time, but every few minutes I shifted it and moved it around).  When it was well-soaked I pulled it out and rinsed a little section to double check.  It looked good, so I dumped my dye down the drain and rinsed my crinoline until it ran clean.  Then, I tossed it in the washer with a little vinegar (to set the color) and let it drip dry when done.  I cleaned my tub with a little bleach and that was that!  Easy.

For what it’s worth, my crinoline was a David’s Bridal one (standard A line fit) and it looks great!
