Additional Information

Description

SUPPLIES & TOOLS:

  • White Dress
  • Simplicity 1873 View C
  • Fabric - white linen look solid - 55% linen & 45% rayon
  • Notions as noted on pattern envelope
  • Purchased petticoat
  • Sewing machine
  • Basic sewing supplies
  • Rit® Liquid Dye - black
  • Bucket
  • Hanger
  • Water source
  • Iron & ironing surface

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Construct dress following the pattern directions.
  2. Mix whole bottle of dye in hot water filling the bucket 1/3 full. Mix in 1 cup of non-iodized salt.
  3. Place dress on hanger and dip the hem area in the bucket and allow it to stay for at least 1/2 hour. Tip – rig up something the hanger can hang from allowing the dress stay in the dye without having to hold it up.
  4. Rinse the skirt portion of the dress in flowing water until the water runs clear. Tip - have the water flow from the top of the skirt area down to avoid excess dye getting on the rest of the white dress.
  5. Hand wash bottom of skirt in a light soapy solution and rinse.
