Dyeing My Wedding Dress

Hi Jennifer,
I’m interested in dying my wedding dress (ivory color now) to a medium to dark blue or black. It’s a simple dress (actually a bride’s maid’s dress) with no beads or embroidery. It’s made of georgette and satin fabrics. The dress came in any color I wanted so I would think this could be done professionally. Do you have any suggestions where to get this done in northern California?

Dear Shannon,
It all depends on the fiber content of the fabric. If it is polyester or acetate, it cannot be dyed. If it is silk or rayon, you have a possibility there. The professional to talk to is Sherry at www.fabricdyeing.com. Although she does live in your neighborhood (or at least your region), she dyes things for people all over the place.
good luck,
