Revival Files: My Favorite So Far

 Total Cost = $5
This is what came of  my color remover party this weekend. I practically hovered over a giant cauldron (okay pot) on the stove and cackled like a witch while I sucked all the peach I could out of that dress. It went something like this ,"Yes my pretty! Be gone peach! Muah ha ha ha!" After about an hour of stirring and stirring it turned into this nasty beige color and then I spent the rest of the  night ombre dying it. As I was dying the dress in the bathroom Matt kept saying, "Honey, you all right in there? Did you fall in?" Har har har. Good one. It isn't the first poop joke that's come out of Sir Matt's mouth and I'm afraid that it won't be the last. Eww poop and mouth should definitely never be used in the same sentence. It's just wrong isn't it.

  14. Chelsey- I used the RIT liquid dye. It's called Kelly Green, I just used less of the dye so that it would come out lighter.

  18. Your talent is unfair! If I could do this, which I sadly have tried and I am the WORST seamstress in the world, my beautiful vintage dress collection would be so much more lovely. Share your talent! Please!

  20. Wow! I think it's actually pretty in both colors! But did you alter the dress to fit you better? The sleeves look shorter in the after pics. Super cute dress revival and I love the way you wore the collar necklace (I have it too!)
