Once everything was removed, I attempted to die the dress red. Well, I don't know if I didn't know what I was doing, or it was the material that wasn't receptive to the dye! LOL After 4 attempts I ended up with a lavender dress and said that's it! I also tried to dye the underskirt black and it came out a dark purple. I guess I didn't clean the washing machine enough but it ended up working because it went with the lighter color of the dress.
We had a great time with our friends at our murder mystery dinner party - Murder in the Wild West!!
