  • Dyeable wedding dress in whtie (100% silk or cotton)
  • Spray bottle, paper towels, and 2 plastic tablecloths

Instructions

  1. Cover work surface with plastic tablecloth. Wearing gloves from dye box, pour water into the Red dye bottle to fill line. Replace lid and shake thoroughly to mix. Pour shaken Red dye into Fuchsia dye bottle to half way. Finish filling with water and shake to mix. Pour into spray bottle. Note: Mixture should be two parts Fuchsia to one part Red.

  2. Place large plastic trash bag between layers of dress to keep dye from seeping through to other side.

  3. Lay floral lace on hem of dress. Spray dye over the lace. Pull lace straight up and lay on a clean paper towel. Blot lace dry with paper towel then place back on hem next to first dyed section. Continue to spray dye over lace across hem until completely covered. Turn dress over and repeat on back.

  4. Lay doily on top center of dress bodice, with top of doily extending partially off the neckline. Spray dye over the doily. Pull doily straight up and lay on a clean paper towel, then blot dry. Continue technique across the top edge of bodice.

  5. Cover dress with plastic trash bags and let set 6 to 8 hours. Wash dress in warmest water possible for fabric on a large load setting with a small amount of laundry soap. Dry separately or hang to dry.

  6. Prewash and dry fabric piece to remove sizing; do not use fabric softener. Hang wet fabric on clothesline, securing with clothespins. Cover floor below clothesline with plastic tablecloth.

  7. Mix Red and Fuchsia dyes according to first step then pour in spray bottle.

  8. Spray bottom 1/4 of fabric with mixed dye, moving spray from side to side.

  9. Add water to remaining dye in spray bottle to dilute color and spray the next 1/4 of fabric across length as shown.

  10. Repeat step to dilute dye mixture again, then spray the next 1/4 fabric across length. Cover with plastic and let set 6 to 8 hours.

  11. Wash dyed fabric on warmest water suitable for fabric on a large load setting with a small amount of laundry soap. Dry separately or line dry.

  12. Sew fabric to dyed dress at the waist, making sure that the top layer is short enough to show the lace design on the bottom layer.
