After seeing some GORGEOUS pictures on here of ladies’ dying their crinoline underneath the dress, I have fallen in love with the idea!!!! However, I don’t know if that would work with MY dress. As you can see in the picture, (that’s me!!) there is tulle showing at the bottom, which is part of the dress, not the crinoline. Would it be weird if my crinoline was dyed a different color than the tulle that is showing? Or does it make no difference? I guess nobody would even see the dyed part unless I was lifting my dress and showing them, right? Any tips/ pointers would be greatly appreciated!

Maybe get a piece of material in the colour you were thinking and place it over the crinoline to see how it looks before dyeing it would be a good idea.

I don’t think it would look quite right. Id suggest coloured shoes if you would like a colour pop 🙂

Thanks guys! I think I might just buy a second crinoline and dye one of them and see how it looks. Then if I don’t like it, I’ll still have a spare!
I guess I’m leaning toward the fact that nobody will even see it anyway unless I show them…I think the tulle is thick enough on the outside of the dress that the colored crinoline underneath wouldn’t show. Or maybe it would be fun if it did anyway!

First off, you look beautiful in that dress! It is so gorgeous!
Second, I think it would look great with the colored crinoline. 🙂

I think colored slips or crinoline will slightly change the color of the dress under the tulle. I’d do what someone else suggested – maybe put a piece of cloth under the tulle in the color you want to dye it, to see if it affects the color of the dress under the tulle.
If you wanted to dye it dark purple, i think it will be noticible. If you dye it light pink, it will probably look mostly the same. I was thinking of buying a dress that had a white tulle skirt and putting a colored slip under it and tried out different color slips, and you could see the differences in color under the tulle.
