  • Water
Step 1: Prepare Your Dress

Step 1: Prepare Your Dress

Start with prewashing your chosen sundress to ensure the dye takes well. Keep it slightly damp. Lay the dress flat on a protective surface and apply accordion pleats vertically. Secure these with rubber bands, creating five evenly spaced sections, prepping your canvas for a splash of color.

Step 2: Mix Your Dyes

For a stunning ombre effect, apply a different dye to each section of the dress. To blend the colors seamlessly, use a spray bottle filled with water at the edges of each color. Alternatively, after dye application, you can remove the rubber bands, lay the dress flat, and employ a paintbrush and water to soften the transitions between hues.

Step 4: Set the Color

Encase your dyed dress in a plastic bag or cover it with plastic wrap to keep it moist. Allow the dye to set for 6 to 8 hours, or leave it overnight for deeper color saturation. Following the setting time, remove any rubber bands and wash the dress as per the dye package instructions.
