Day 176: From White to Apple Green

Day 177: Christmas Eve No-Sew Dress Refashion
Day 175: Christmas Luncheon Dress: Easy DIY Hem

I just so love a fun dye transformation!

When I found this white dress at the thrift store for $1, I knew it was a perfect candidate for a color swap!

I just don’t look so great in white…:/

You’re looking at a dingy linen dress.  I couldn’t leave the color as-is, so I dyed it at the same time as my dress from Day 173!

A dye bath for 2!

I chopped off some of that awkward length.  It was looking a bit marmish.

Chop!

Then, I hemmed that bottom raw edge!

Pin it. Hem it. Be done with it! 🙂

After a quick press, my new dress was done!  🙂

I like how the color came out, but I was a little disappointed that the ropey things on the sleeves took to the dye so well.  I was hoping they’d stay white. :/  Other than that, I was really happy with this one.  Temps were at around 70 degrees (crazy warm…even for South Carolina!), so this lightweight frock was super-comfy! 🙂
