I had two little girls over yesterday. One had a cute bright pink dress on it with a large blue stain in the front. Her mother commented that she would not be able to wear it to school in the fall. So I offered to dye it for her. Upon hearing this the other little girl, who was wearing a gorgeous yellow dress, asked if hers could be dyed as well. The mother grudgingly consented and here are the results.
I chose a purple dye bath, as I knew I needed something dark to cover up the stain on the pink dress, yet wanted to have a nice contrast with the yellow dress too. I used elastics on both and scrunched them into a wide mouth vase to achieve the marbling effect. I am pleased with both and hope the little girls will be too.
