Dyeing An Old Wedding Dress

Hello Jennifer,
I would love to wear my wedding dress again and I’m wondering if it could be dyed (I’m flexible on color). The fabric is 50% Nylon, 50% Polyester (lining 100% Acetate). There is some embroidery and “crystals” in the very simple bodice, spaghetti straps, a-line, no train. Is this a possibility, and if so, how would I go about doing it?

Dear Shelley,
I am sorry, your dress cannot be dyed. Pack it up for posterity, sell it on consignment, or give it to charity or maybe a friend. Go shopping. Take a look at my July and August columns for more on this subject.
