Hello you guys! I purchased a vintage sundress yesterday at a thrift store for $1.50. Now normally I would not purchase something with a big flaw but I just couldn't help it! I thought it was way too cute to leave behind. (Plus I love any Hawaii stuff) Trouble is 1/4 of the dress is faded. (Top straps and half of the boob area.) My idea was to get a navy blue dye and re-dye the dress. Now I know if I do that the red is gonna turn a different color.. do you think it will turn brown or purpley? *lol* Hopefully someone knows.I really don't have another idea other than only dipping the top half in dye.. but I think that might look a little silly.. and we all know we don't wanna look silly!
The dress is 100% cotton so it shouldn't be a issue dyeing.
Below is the pic of one of the straps twisted MAJOR fading on outside nice and new inside *lol*
What would you do? And don't tell me "I wouldn't have bought it!" *hahah*
