- Cover table with plastic and gather your supplies.
- Prewash dresses to remove any finishes that may interfere with dye absorption.
- Fill a large plastic container with 3 gallons of very hot water. Water temperature should ideally be 140°F.
- Add 1/2 cup Rit All-Purpose Dye in Rose Quartz, 2 Tablespoons of Petal Pink and 1 Tablespoon of Coral. Shake bottles before pouring.
- Add 1 teaspoon of dish detergent to help promote level dyeing. Stir well.
- Test dye color by dipping paper towel in the dyebath. If color is too light, add more dye; if color is too dark, add more water.
- Wearing rubber gloves, lower the dresses into the dyebath. The first 10 minutes are the most critical. Stirring helps to ensure an even color with no splotches.
- When desired color is achieved, remove from dyebath. Fabric will look darker when wet and will dry lighter. Squeeze out excess dye.
- We recommend using Rit ColorStay Dye Fixative immediately after dyeing and before washing to enhance color, increase color retention and prevent dye from bleeding into white areas. Follow package instructions.
- Wash in warm water with a mild detergent, rinse and dry.
- Secure the letters HAHA to the top of a headband with a hot glue gun.
