Keep in mind that dyes are transparent. The natural coloring of this dress will combine with whatever color you dye it. So if you dye it a light shade of blue, the finished color result will appear as a greenish (teal blue) tint t. This beautifully made dress looks fantastic undyed, too!

Wash the wood buttons extra carefully as they take up a lot of dye and can bleed on the garment later!
