I want to dye a polyester wedding dress for a Halloween costume. There is a lot of sheer fabric, as well as, lace applique. I want to dye it hot pink; any suggestions?

For a costume it shouldn't have to turn out perfect. Because of the different types of fabric, each type will turn out to be a slightly different shade of pink. As will any areas that have unnoticeable stains on it. Is the dress washable, because for dying, if I remember right, you have use hot water.

Go to your local crafts or fabric store (Michael's? Joann's? ) and get a dye that says it is for synthetic fabrics. Then follow the directions. That much fabric might require more than one package of dye to get an intense color.

DeBushe is right, you're going to need dye made especially for synthetic fabrics. LOL, I learned this the hard way:)

There is a product called PolyDye near the Rit at Joannes-specifically for dying polyester.
