Okay, blog friends, I need your help!
I'm on a mission to drastically cut down the number of dresses I have sitting around waiting to be altered! Right now, I'm focusing on this one:
It doesn't need a ton of work, just a few little changes in length and fit, so it should be pretty easy. But here's what I need some help on: The COLOR! I feel like the beige is way too close to my skin tone, and it makes me look washed out. However, since it is beigey, that also makes it hard to dye it to a great color.
I had about half a bottle of turquoise dye left over from a past project, so I chopped a little piece of fabric from the bottom of the skirt (which I knew I'd be cutting off anyway) to see how it would pick up the dye. Here's how it turned out:
I don't know. It's not the greatest blue-green color ever... but I think it might be better than the original beige. What do you guys think? Go blue(-ish green?) or keep it the color it is? Let me know!
