1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Re: Can I dye only part of a dress? on: November 28, 2008 10:08:23 AM
i forget what it was exactly but the fabric was a cotton-something blend so i think i'll be able to find a dye for it, and i'll probably just dunk the whole thing.
i got another dress for the occasion so if i screw it up its no big deal.
thanks guys : )
2  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Can I dye only part of a dress? 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.


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


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,

this may be silly, but how do you cut them to size after they are reduced?

The design was inspired by two Vera Wang dresses I saw.

 thats funny because Vera Wang is exactly what i thought of  when i first saw this dress.

i would have voted for it : D

typically, miniskirts and microskirts are most flattering on shorter people, it makes the leg line appear longer, by showing more of it, and i would definately suggest atleast taking 2 or 3 inches(whatever you're comfortable with )

also, if you cut the length to the thinnenst part of you upper thigh, it will make your legs seem that same thinness the whole way up, which makes you seem taller as well. not that you need it, just something i learned in fashion class a while ago.
