A Summer Skirt Gets a Fall Makeover

27 Oct

Since the dye job I did earlier in the week turned out so well, I was inspired to try again!  I’ve had this old white and brown skirt that my mom gave me forever and I have never worn it because it has a big stain right on the front.  Today’s dye job will make this summer skirt ready for fall AND covers up that pesky stain!

I mixed a whole package of Rit dye in Golden Yellow with some hot water and added it to the washing machine set on the hottest and shortest cycle.  Then I put the skirt in and let the cycle finish and the final product covered up the stain and turned out a beautiful mellow yellow.   A brown and yellow skirt paired with some brown leather boots is the perfect fall ensemble!
