Step 1: Dying the Skirt
Fill up your pot with hot water, add the packages of dye, a scoop of detergent, some salt, and stir very well. Then heat it up on the stove.
Get the garment completely soaked with water.
Since the item we're dying is pretty large, we're gonna use a big plastic tub to do the actual dying process in. Otherwise, we would do it right in the pot where we did the dye bath. Put your garment in the dye bath and completely submerge it. You wanna leave it in for about a half an hour and the whole time you should be moving it around because it needs constant agitation.
Once you've reached your desired color, take it out and thoroughly rinse with cold water.
Then hang it up to dry.
Step 2: Add Thrift Store Finds and Deconstruct
Cut the bottom ruffle off of the top layer of the skirt so that you have some tulle poofing out from the bottom.
Step 3: Add Ruffles and Sleeves
And you're havin' sew much fun in your new costume!
