1  Can I dye only part of a dress? in Clothing: Discussion and Questions by monamant on: November 15, 2008 11:42:43 AM
So I've got this dress. It was a hand-me down from a friend of mine. Excuse the poor photo shop skills.



 It has been on my floor/around my room for a while, and somehow ended up going through the wash cycle quite a few times. Somehow, between my other clothes(lots of dark jeans and black tee shirts etc.) and the dress itself, the white trim has become dingy and pretty gross looking(refer to "ew.").
I have a military holiday party to go to Dec 9th with my boyfriend, and nothing to wear, and absolutely no money to buy anything with.
However, I do have these stunning suede brown/orange/yellow peep toe heels that would look fabulous with the dress if there was slightly more coordination going on.
So here's my preposition:
I buy some yellow dye(see "cute.") and either paint it or sponge paint it onto just the gross white parts of the dress, because I don't really want to turn the brown a weird color.

OR

I just dye the whole dress and hope it doesn't end up looking like barf-brown.

OR

My mom suggested I take it to the dry cleaners and see if they can get the dinginess out, but I kind of have my heart set on turning it yellowto match my shoes.



What do you guys think? Is there a better option?

Thanks in advance,
Lizzy

theres this dye that does a slight lightening and color all at once... after the color washes out completely, there's still a lightened effect but it fades into the rest of your hair i think.

my friend used it^ she had no previous lightening treatments... andi used the same product...
thats after a month of having it in... but i had highlights before that.

it says fuscia but I've seen it in blue before.
good luck<333
