Mint Matching Bridesmaid Dress to Blue and Fabulous

I was in a bit of a panic because I was attending a wedding and the dress that I had been working on ended up just looking awful. I had this amazing mint dress dress which was fine, but it was also the same color as the bridesmaid dresses! ahhhh!

I grabbed some navy blue Rit-Dye and soaked it in cold water for one hour. I crossed my fingers because this dress is polyester and I had no idea if it would even hold dye!

The inner layer of this dress and some of the trim did not take any of the dye. The outer layer, however, dyed so nicely!!

You can find my tutorial here!

Happy Sewing!

Great job! The blue actually looks better on you than the mint green!
