Color Blend/Fade

Hey Miss Jennifer, I have a work in progress costume for an upcoming expo. Around the thigh area of the dress is a pink to purple color change. The fabric will be pink and we’ll dye it purple. I’ve thought of using a deep purple spray dye, or maybe soaking half of it in the purple dye. What method should I use to obtain that wonderful color blend/fade?

Hi Brittney;
goodness! what a costume!
Please read my article on Fabric Dyeing 101 before anything else. It really all depends on the fiber content of the fabric. If it is possible to do, you may have to send this to a professional dye house to get the effect that you want. This is an advanced lesson, unless you want to learn airbrush techniques.
best,
Jennifer
