Dip-Dye Ombre
  • I am sewing a skating dress and would like to dip-dye ombre the skirt from dark color (at the top) to white (at the bottom). I probably will use georgette fabric. I have no experience with dye and I have no idea how to proceed. Can someone help me please? :confused:
  • Hi,

    This is pretty easy. The simplest way to achieve a color vignette or fade is to wet the fabric and place one end into the dye bath and let the dye creep down the fabric. You should get a good vignette of color from dark to light though it can be a little unpredictable. For a more predictable result you should wet the fabric lay it flat on some plastic and paint or spray the darkest color dye on to one end and then dilute the dye a little and paint the next lighter shade adjacent to the dark color and so on keeping the fabric damp at all times.
