Can I Dye Acetate Dress?

I am looking to dye an old bridesmaid dress. I already read that this is a “no” but I am still curious. The fabric is acetate. It is currently a pale champagne color dress. There is no trim. No frills to the dress. I am looking to dye it black or probably throw the dress away. Is the only danger I am facing that the dress may come out unevenly?

No, uneven will not be your result. The total destruction of the dress is likely. Acetate doesn’t take to water well and it doesn’t take reactive dye at all. Make it into a costume, donate it to your favorite little girl who likes to play dress up, or give it to charity.
