Coloring Hat and Shoes

Jennifer, I have an old Christening gown, but no hat and shoes – so I purchased a white hat and Material shoes. I need to color the new hat and shoes to match or blend with the 30 year old christening gown which is now an ivory or beige color. What would be the best method for this. Thanks, Mary in New Orleans

Dear Mary,
Without seeing the whole set I can’t tell you exactly what to do. The first thing is to determine if your fabric is all cotton. The shoes, you may have to have professionally dyed, as they are probably polyester and won’t take any kind of dye. Please start by reading my article on Fabric Dyeing 101 You are going to have to experiment to get what you want.
Write back if you have more questions!
