Removing Dye from an Evening Dress

I have an emerald green evening dress that I want to make white. Is this possible and how would you suggest I do this?

I don't think there is any way to remove all the dye from a dark dress like this. Even if you were able to bleach out the color without damaging the fabric (and most evening gowns are dry clean only), it would definitely leave color at every sewed seam.

If you do find a way, please let us know. Good luck.

I agree with the previous poster. There is likely no possible way to remove the dye from an evening dress without destroying the fabric.

RIT makes a product for removing dye. Ive never used it before so I dont know how it will react but I would recommend you test it on a swatch of similar fabric.


Get a swatch from your local fabric store if you dont have a silk or satin pillow case to use.
