I did it!! I dyed my crinoline!!

It looks awesome! Thank you thank you to all the ladies who came up with and discussed this idea. My petticoat cost $12 on ebay and the dye cost $1.50 at wal-mart. Not too shabby for less than $15!!

nice!  good job!


I read somewhere today that if you soak it in warm water with a cup of white vinegar that it helps to "set" the color.  Did you do that too?

I did not soak it in vinegar.


I disolved the powdered dye in 2 cups of water with 1 cup of salt in a bowl. I then added that to an already full washing machine. The water was SUPER hot. The package suggested the salt.


soon2b, I had wanted to do red, but I was afraid the red wouldn't set as dark as I wanted and turn out pink. Let me know how the red turns out, I'm interested too see how it will look!

I'm debating whether or not to dye one... b/c I found a place online that already has red colored ones www.bridalpetticoat.com but I'm worried about how it would fit b/c it kinda is described as OSFA... but I bet my seamstress could fix it right up so that it was taylored...


 I m debating whether photo 90791-1


There was a gal on wedding by color today that posted an awesome pink dye job on a David's Bridal crinoline and it came out really good http://weddingbycolor.com/angmdrusso/milestones/26921


If I went that route, I could at least make sure it fit beforehand...


and they are about the same price ~$50... so I'm debating...

I just started a blog there about a month ago.  It seems like their server is alot slower b/c it takes forever for pages to load sometimes!  But it seems ok - I have gotten some good ideas from there too!  But I keep trying to get those girls to come over to PW hahaha!!!!!!!!    :)


what's your screen name on WBC?

I've been working on my table numbers tonight. We have to have everything done sooner rather than later since we're entertaining 20+ for christmas and I'm traveling for work the first 2 weeks of december... (santa fe, NM)


But for the most part I think we're in pretty good shape!

Shut Up! OMG, girl, that is fricken awesome. I've read a lot about it from the other threads on PW but always was afraid to even dare DIY. But now that I see proof that it can be done, I am all for it. Thanks for reassuring me! It turned out GREAT!!
