A Candy Corn Dress with RIT Dye

Do you ever make something that you just love?  That’s how I feel about this candy corn dress made with RIT Dye.  I just love it.

I was so excited when I received this box of RIT Dye.  The colors are vibrant and beautiful.  I hadn’t tried RIT Dyes before and I was a bit unsure how it would go but they were so easy to use.  Total success on the first try.

I used Golden Yellow and Sunshine Orange RIT Dye for this project and a cotton dress from Dharma Trading Co.

I used a dip dye technique which gave the dress a streaked appearance that I really like.  I think it looks kind of artsy.  I used the yellow dye first and mixed it according to the instructions on the bottle {very hot water is key}.  I laid the dress in the bowl with the bottom two thirds of the dress under water.

After the allotted time, the dress looked like this.

I let it dry until it was just damp, then repeated the process with the orange dye {I only dipped the bottom third into the orange}.

The result was a bright candy corn dress.

I added one more subtle touch: yellow vinyl lettering that says “sweet as candy corn”.  I placed the vinyl over the yellow section to keep it really subtle.

I love this little dress!  We’ll be heading to the pumpkin patch as soon as it opens to take some cute photos!

Have you used RIT Dye before?  I’d love to know what you made.

    How funny, I spent the weekend dying too! Everything orange around here for the San Francisco Giants big win this weekend. I used Rit and Tulip Dyes. I love your candy cane effect…your daughter is darling!

    I like using Rit to color onesies. However, beware that the brown has a lot of red in it and can spot your clothes with a bit o’red. boo. Love the candy corn idea.

    This is absolutely adorable! I had been thinking about how I could create a candy corn dress for my daughter but hadn’t considered using dyes. I love this!
