Tye Dyeing Dresses

Using some t shirt surgery I'm turning some t-shirts into t-dresses. 1 misses, 1 8yr, 1 onesie dress. Should I dye the skirts seperately to ensure saturation? DD wants her dress to have ruffled tiers, should I dye them seperately then construct?

Sorry, I'm not the best at explaining.

I'm using this tutorial to make DD & my skirts for our dresses yea Michaels t-shirt sale! http://www.kids-sewing-projects.com/t-shirt-skirt.html

Should I construct the dress then dye it as one piece or would it be easier to dye the skirt & shirt separately then sew the two together? I'm really concerned on the misses dress, there's so much fabric I'm worried won't be able to get every fold saturated, am I overthinking it? I haven't tye dyed in years and my only experience is rit dye.

2 misses shirts are pima cotton as well (modesty issues given the water activities) Do I need to purchase xtra dye for heavier cotton?

Well I would dyed it once the skirt is already made so you'll get the pattern on the skirt, you know the tie dye pattern.

I'm not familiar with those dyes so Im not sure, but if you think you might next extra dye go ahead and get some.

First timer here

Well I have been reading this thread for like a month and keep trying and trying to make these shirts but no good turn out yet-- I have messed up probably about 20 shirts. I haven't tried the Dharma/jacquard dye yet b/c I just live in a small town and am just trying to use what I have available. So tonight I am going to try another with the Rit dye but I am going to try the soda ash thing with it. I am having a real hard time with the dye running once I put it in the wash....

I rinse and rinse and rinse until the water is clear (at this point the dye has not bled) but as soon as I put it in the washing machine it bleeds and the color fades. I am going to Disney in August and it will be our first trip so I really really want to have these made but I have already spent a fortune trying to get the technique down so now I have been fortunate enough to have friends and family supply me with their old 100% cotton white tshirts.

Wish me luck on tonights project and pray that the colors don't bleed.

YES!! Tulip is fiber reactive. I recomended you to use the Soda Ash with the tulip I know the dye has the soda ash already but I always use it, soak them, then squeeze excess water, fiber reactive dye MUST BE wet to get "fix". For more intense colors with the tulip fill the bottle half way or at least a 1/4 from the top of the bottle.

Take your time and you'll be fine... you got my e-mail let me know if you need help..
