Dying Patterned Fabric

I am a huge fan of Refashionista's blog and the crazy incredible things she does with a pair of scissors, a sewing machine and loads of Rit dye. I mean, seriously, that chickadee is amazing. 

My favorite thing I've learned from her is....

You can dye patterned fabric!

Ok. The rest of the world is probably thinking, "Well, duh." But this was news to me. I mean, I'd just never thought about it. 

So, when I stumbled across this fun skirt at a thrift store today for $5 (sorry, blurry pic)....

and it fit and I liked the styl and I can never have enough skirts, but I wasn't super keen on the print. So, I grabbed two bottles of denim blue Rit dye at Walmart...

headed home, popped it into a small load in my washing machine with hot water, threw in the dye and two cups of salt and...

Voila! I love it. (Although it's not this purple in real life!) 

I can't wait to wear it.
