Want to know a secret? My projects don't always go as planned. In fact, many completely bite the dust. Let me share with you...the purple dye disaster.
I found a beautifully peach dress at a thrift store that I wanted to refashion like I did with The Red Dress. However, peach isn't my color, so I was going to dye the dress purple first. I purchased the dye, prepped the dress and agitated the dye/dress/water mixture for 1 hour (just as it says to do on the back of the dye).
But due to my excitement to see the pretty purple, I didn't read the back of the dye where it says polyester is not an ideal fabric and will most likely not take the color. Thus, when I rinsed the fabric with cold water, I saw all of the purple dye leave the dress and head on down the drain.
