And then I did. Have you yourself had questions about dying a Matilda Jane dress? How do you dye a Matilda Jane dress? Or is it easy to dye clothes? How do you dye a dress?
I am answering all these questions and might be fist pumping as well - because HOLY COW this was awesome.
I had a Harbor Grey Emilia. Actually, I had two (long story but I bought the wrong size during a Good Luck Trunk sale and couldn't return it) So, I thought about selling it, and then when I took it out of the bag I noticed that it had these weird color marks on it.
So, perfect candidate for my first dying experience.

|The culprit - see the weird color marks?|
Okay, so here we go.
1. Buy a small bottle of Rit Dye in Fuchsia. Also have a bucket, mixing bowl, wooden spoon, and bleach on hand.
2. Soak and stir half/half to a little more than half bleach half water and put in a mixing bowl. Stir stir stir! (maybe 5-10 minutes. Honestly the color turned quick.
3. Take it out and rise it well and remove the bleach smell. See how cute it is even without dying it?

|Things to note: The thread and label did not bleach or dye because it's made of polyester.|
|It turns quick!|
|Done! It's pretty dark as you can see, but it will lighten|
