@Firie:  If the petticoat is synthetic, like nylon, just make sure you buy dye suited to synthetics. The brand iDye with the swirly colours on the pack has both natural (cotton, linen etc) and synthetic (nylon, polyester etc.)

Newbee question here – am I supposed to dye my petticoat? What does it do? Are people really going to see it or is it more like wearing a cute set of underwear – you’re the only one that knows about it but it makes you feel pretty?

I dye petticoats often for my work as the owner of an online petticoat boutique. I use RIT liquid dye that is readily available at craft stores in the states – not sure about Australia. Nylon is great for dying so long it is untreated – most nylon bridal petticoats will dye beautifully. I have noticed that “Merry Modes” petticoats are labeled nylon but only the netting layers take up dye. Polyester and poly blends, however, will not take up the dye. Be sure to follow the dye instructions and wash your petticoat in warm water after it is soaked and rinsed in order to set the dye and prevent the it from bleeding!

hatmanandbobbin — You definitely don’t have to dye you petticoat. Some brides just like to do it to add a pop of color or a hidden suprise when they lift their skirts, or just like you said, to feel extra beautiful underneath 🙂

Good luck to you!
