So I want to dye my crinoline like light green/lime green and i tried looking at the rit website but they are no help, having to calculate the math for all that seems like such a pain, besides who has a food scale to weigh a crinny? I was thinking of using the apple green but i really dont want to have to order it offline and pay the shipping and it be wrong 🙁 Anyone else dye thier crinoline light green? Any pictures? I need to do it soon but Im so nervous!

if you’re worried about doing it yourself, there’s a woman on etsy who can do it for you…i think she charges $40 plus shipping. (don’t know if that’s reasonable…would seem so, since if you ruin your crinoline dying it yourself, you’d have to replace it.) anyway, this is her site, called SwankUnderpinnings.
i can’t find the specific listing on her site now, but that was the whole reason i bookmarked her shop, so if you can’t find it either i’m sure you could send her a message.

@cardus: I wish my dress allowed for a crinoline, I love the crinolines she has!
@mrsjustice2be: I would highly suggest doing the math and weighing the crinoline, you wouldn’t want to ruin it…
http://lagooncreaturecrafts.tumblr.com/ This person was dying with forest green and that resulted in lime green. Is there any way you can get a test strip of the same type of fabric as your crinoline and do that first?
