Purple Ombre Dye

I have been on a real kick with dyeing white clothes lately.

I had this beautiful white lace dress, which was pretty on it’s own but white really isn’t my color.DSCN1328

I decided this dress would be a great ombre dye project and purple was the color for the job!


I used the bucket dye technique since the dress needed to be lowered into the dye to achieve the ombre effect.

These are the times I used:

The hardest part is after the dyeing process…You have to rinse the garment in cold water until the water runs clear. This is why I prefer the machine dyeing method, if at all possible. I have little patience for rinsing until the water is clear. But I got through it….finally.

Happy Refashioning!!!
