Rit Dyeing for a Deep Pink Dress

Color Transformation
This dress comes with a bit of backstory.  It's actually a double ReFashion.  Before this dress was a dress the skirt was a white bed sheet from Goodwill.  The bodice was a white duvet from Goodwill.  I used the sheet to make a circle skirt (tutorial here).  I sewed the circle skirt to a simple tube top that I made from an old white duvet.
Deep Pink Dye
Before I made this dress I knew the color that I wanted it to be.  I wasn't entirely sure how I would create a deep dark pink, so I pretty much made up this process as I went along.  Turns out, 1 bottle of liquid fuchsia and 1/2 a box of scarlet did the trick!!

The step by step tutorial on using Rit Dye is on my blog.  

This is NOT a sponsored post. I just happened to use this kind of dye.

Interesting to mix the dyes to get the right colour
