Overdye

At least that’s what I think it’s called.

This is not directly a knitting post but I know there are many knitters that dye yarn.  I have a dye question.

I have a wonderful denim wrap skirt.  It fits great, is A-line, is the right length, has the nicest buttons.  And is age appropriate.  I love everything about it.  Except the color.

Denim skirt

Not a good picture but it’s the only one I have available right now.

It’s too light.  It’s a washed-out denim.

I’d like to dye it a darker blue but have little experience in dyeing anything other than Easter eggs and the tie-dye T-shirts we did in art class.

My biggest fear is that I will ruin it forever.  I will wear it as it is now but if I could change make it darker, I would.  If it comes out a yucky blue, I’ll be very upset.

It has a little bit of metal on it so “curing” it in the microwave is out.

Have you ever dyed anything successfully?  Help!

One thought on “Overdye

  1. If it is an older skirt, I would take the chance. I dyed some thing years ago, but I don’t remember how it turned out. I assume I was happy with it. If it is a yucky color, then dye it again. You may get a darker color.
