    This! Most dyable fabrics start out white, and it has to be a dyable fabric to start with.

    Thats the issue, you will need to call someone who does this kind of work, but they are going to tell you that you have to start with a dress that is dyable material.

    I would ask my local board for recommendations for a seamstress, or someone who offers that service. And go from there.

    Gotta be honest, it seems like you may end up with more time and money than just finding another dress. Sorry I cant be more help. Good Luck.
