Dress Color Change - Can A Dress Be Dyed?

So i finally found the dress of my dreams but its white!!! Is their anyway i can dye it or something and make it red???

Hi Anna,

If it is 100% silk or made of natural fiber fabrics I hear that they take dye well. But if it is made out of man made fibers, like polyester, nylon, acetate, etc.... these fabrics don't take dye as well. I don't know of a source that would dye the dress for you. You will probably have to do it yourself.

Years ago there use to be a source you could send your dress in to for dyeing. I remember it was quite expensive to do it. I know it was over $100 that they charged for the service because of the risk involved. You may want to do a search online to see if a service exist. If you decide to tackle it yourself do research on that as well.

Additional information: I found this link to a blog where a woman gives directions on how she dyed her wedding dress you might find helpful.

I also found this link to a dress dyeing service.
