Does anyone know where I can find a plus size blue crinoline slip to wear underneath my dress?
This is the only one I can really find… http://www.etsy.com/listing/45136315/something-blue-black-white-or-crinoline
If you had dyed crinoline under your dress, where did you buy it?

That is info on how to dye it. I was wanting to dye mine too. NOt sure where to buy ones already dyed.

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!
