    I bought a great dress - the cut is perfect for me: just above knee length, cap sleeves, backless, pretty and flowy. BUUUUT i dont like the pattern on it. it's a blue floral pattern and it looks pretty cheap. Is there some way you can dye the dress a block colour? It's made out of viscose and is see-through (there's a blue petticoat underneath it). I think i'd probably dye it a dark colour but have no idea how to do this and whether it's even possible. I don't want to ruin the dress!!!

    pretty much no chance. you'll always be stuck with the pattern, even very faintly. you could try dying it the darkest blue of the pattern, but the pattern will prolly sitll show a bit.

    maybe ill just return it. it's a rly pretty summery dress and i dont think it would look right in black. ideally, i think it would be a cream or lightish colour but i guess that would never work

    no afraidt it wouldnt because youd need an opaque dye and that would make it crispy
