Last year, my nonna gave me a white eyelet dress she outgrew.
It was cute, except I didn’t like the buttons and the pockets. So I decided to take them off. When I did, I found a stain underneath the collar. I had been considering dyeing it, but knew I had to after I saw that lovely pink stain. I wanted to make it a sky blue, but the only RIT dye I had was Navy. I thought if I just used less than recommended, I could get a lighter shade of blue. I was wrong. This is what I got.
Well it’s not sky blue, it’s more like dark purple with a few lighter splotches of greyish light purple, but I really love it. The splotches make it look more rustic than tie dye and the midnight purple color is too pretty. Here’s how I wore it.
Thanks to my
photographer boyfriend for taking these pretty pictures for me.
What do you think? Did I improve the dress or ruin it?
