I didnt dye mine but I used a rope from an outdoor shop to tie it. Petersham ribbon is really nice and would work as a sturdy corset tie. For a dye you have to first know the fibre content but most of them should work well with dylon.

I haven’t done it, but this bride did with red http://janay-a.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2010/05/Jennifer-1950s-wedding-gown-remake-red-corset-ties.jpg

I think it looks beautiful, but it is a very bold statement. I can’t promise that you can do it on your dress, but I would think that the ties on most corsets would be seperate from the dress. Instead of dying it, I would purchase an already colored ribbon to use. I think it would be easier to get the exact color you want. If the ties are attached, I would think a good seamstress would be able to take them off for you.

Oh I miss read I didnt realise that it was part of the gown. I would not risk it as it could blead through.

Dying might be risky as it could bleed onto the dress. Couldn’t you just buy a similar-length colored ribbon instead?
