I thought about doing it, but my gown is lace at the bottom, so I don’t think it would look good showing through the entire time. Here is a link from another bee with a tutorial. She did a very good job and hers is purple.

@Loribeth: My gown has lining and tulle, but the lace is kind of see through in the front. It is hard to explain, so here is a picture.

I did it.  Make sure that the dress is made of a material that is dyable.  Some synthetic ones aren’t.  If it’s artificial materials, I would use more dye than you think.  I used 2 boxes on my crinoline and the color was still very light.
