maybe after you dye it, put it in the dryer after a few days to “seal” it up?

my guess is that they will get on the dress when it gets wet – so avoid getting ur petticoat wet.

You can mix different colors of RIT to get the perfect shade.

To keep it more colorfast, I suggest following the instructions exactly, which I believe includes adding salt to the dyebath (its been a while since I have used it)

I once dyed a nylon slip, and the color has never really rubbed off…  I think it takes the dye better than cotton….

There is a peroxide treatment.  It will seal in the color.  Sorry I don’t have the details, but it was a trick my mom used to do.
