Dip dyeing is a simple process where a section of your dress is colored by dipping it in a dye solution. The longer your dress soaks in the colored water, the deeper the color in going to be, which is why it is quite simple to achieve that ethereal ombré effect you have been lusting for that you’ve seen on so many dresses.
