A few weeks ago I popped in a couple thrift stores looking for jeans for Tillie. I didn't find any jeans (but did get a loan from a friend!), but found this simple white sundress for 99¢.
Now, Tillie doesn't really need any more dresses for this summer. I planned on getting some knit play dresses at garage sales for hot summer days, but that's it. For some reason, I just can't picture Tillie wearing this as a play dress at camp turning out well. After I washed it I also noticed a small stain on the back that I couldn't get out.
So, I decided it was time I tried out a new crafty endeavor - dyeing.
The dress is currently sitting in the dye, along with two Carter's bodysuits. I had them on hand and I might as well throw something else in there while I had everything out. The package suggest letting them soak for 1 hour, but I'm leaving them in a little longer because I don't think it will hurt them and will only help the color.
The most random thing? The dress is from Dharma Trading Company, which I discovered today sells items specifically for dyeing! Now I have my eye on a few other styles. I'm pretty sure Tillie needs the pinafore dress.
Check back tomorrow for an update!
