I really love these shoes... I want to wear them for my prom!  The only thing is I need them in black Sad  Do you guys think it's possible to get these dyed?  They don't say dyeable, but they don't say not reccomended for dyeing either.  Any advice guys? Huh

I have measured out my life with coffee spoons

My ballet teacher dyed my point shoes black. they where satin just like that. use black fabric dye, but paint it on, DONT SUBMERGE! if you do, the inside will get dyed. a word of caution: the dye tend to rub off, after each time i danced in my shoes, my feet got black dye on them. it washed off but it was annoying after 5 0r 6 times. the dye also shrinks the fabric, so get a half size biger.

Hi Al!  I got my shoes for prom.  But they are a secret... so I can't show them to you.  I might post them on the promalong board to get some ideas for a purse and jewelry though-- so maybe you can get a sneak peek!

Add me on Ravelry!  I'm diranasaurus.
