How to Fix My Dress?
February 7, 2017 5:49am CST
I bought a dress last week at a second hand shop. It is a bright cerise colour with white polka dots and white stitching. When I've had a good look at it I see the pink dye has run into some of the dots. Is there any way to fix this or is it a lost cause? I was thinking about maybe putting a lighter pink dye over the whole thing and possibly disguising the dye run but I have no idea if this would even work. Does anyone on My Lot have any experience with this sort of thing? I should say I have already tried soaking the dress for half an hour and then washing in the machine and it is the same. Any help would be much appreciated.

@redurnet Thanks for putting up the picture of the dress. If I were you, I would buy the glitter glue and glue each white dot with glitter. (Glitter can be either white or pink).. I know it will take alot of your time but you will be the only one who has that dress... Hope my idea is a good one..

I think once it's run into the rest of the fabric there's not a whole lot you can do. I think that dyeing it you're still going to end up with the darker spots and runs looking a little darker than the overall dress. But I don't know. I will be interested in hearing it from other folks on this site and their experience with it.
