Hi! I was wondering if any body had experience with getting a dress dyed. If so, how did it turn out for you? And would you reccomend finding a local place or some where online that you can ship the dress to? I’d like to dye this white dress the color of the blue one. It has a charameuse underlay with lace over it.

Is it a chiffon dress? If so, you have a good shot to dye it darker, but not lighter 🙂

I think it also depends on the type of fiber it’s made out of…I’m pretty sure you can dye cotton easily, but anything synthetic is more difficult…

Would it be possible to get a fabric sample? That’s best, then you can practise with the sample to get the diluting and timing down for the exact color you want. If you not possible, the best plan is to start small. Low dilution and little time. Let it dry and see how the color looks. Then try it again, until you get to the right color. If you’re doing multiple dresses, it can be difficult to get them all the exact same shade but the best way to get close is to do them all at the same time. But that does take some nerve.

I think it all depends on the fabric, but a VERY important thing to notice is that sometimes the fabric dyes fine but the thread used does not!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have several pieces of clothing that i took to be professionally dyed and they looked great also because the thread color was different… So pay attention to that!
