This question may have been posted before but I am having a bit of difficulty searching for an answer.
I have a beautiful dress that I want to dye a solid color and I want to try to dye as much of it as I possibly can including the sticking.
The dress in question is composed of silk outer shell and polyester lining and crinoline and also the stitching.
I have experience processing with disperse dyes and have had some wonderful results. I also have good results processing silk.
I would like to know if the silk will suffer if I make the disperse dye bath, heat up the water, and then "quickly" dip the dress in this dye bath....and then after rinsing and drying I would process the silk with the acid dye process.
