A white wedding is fine and all, but why not add some color to an already magical day by creating a custom tie-dye wedding dress? Brides everywhere are opting out of the traditional white dress in favor of fun color schemes! This tutorial from Pretty Life Girls will show you how to add a delicate gradient to your dress with Tulip One-Step Tie-Dye Refills!
Tulip One-Step Tie-Dye Refills (assorted colors)
White dress (natural fiber fabric)
Protective surface cover
Before you get started on this ombre tie-dye wedding dress, prewash the dress that you’ll be dyeing and leave it damp. Lay the dress flat on a protected work surface.
Empty the contents of each tie-dye refill packet into a separate plastic cup and prepare the dye solutions according to package instructions.
Apply one color of tie dye along the bottom of the dress. Dip a large paintbrush in water and brush the dye upward, creating a gradient of the original color.
Repeat to add as many colors as you’d like onto your custom tie-dye wedding dress! Use a paintbrush dipped in water to blend one color into the next.
Once you’re happy with the colors on your ombre tie-dye wedding dress, place your project in a sealed plastic bag and let it set for 6 to 8 hours, then launder according to package instructions. Your custom wedding dress is now ready for your special day!
