Low Water Immersion Dye Project

I've been eyeing these uber cute dyed dresses for months and decided to try my hand at making one for Eleanor. I purchased a simple 100% cotton light pink play dress from Basic Brilliance. I picked up a packet of Flamingo Pink Dylon dye from Hobby Lobby. I followed these directions for Low Water Immersion Dying. Within a couple of hours, I had a fun new dress for brightening up cold winter days!





Ella found her new dress so snuggy that she curled up by the heater and tucked herself in for a nap this morning. :)

Looks fabulous! I love dyeing, but have never used anything other than Rit. It looks like there are a lot more options out there. We have the same pink chucks. I can't wait til Goldie grows into them!

I just looked at the Land's End website, I think your dress looks way better!
