How-to-Color-a-White-Dress-Part-2

So … how do we color a dress white?

1. See Various Colors

Just by looking a piece of white cloth in the light, we’ll see various colors, such as cream, yellow, green, blue, pink and gray. This partly depends on what light source is falling on it.

2. Use Soft Colors

White is usually toned with several colors. Soft colors. Gentle colors.

3. Choose Warm or Cool

If you want a warmer white:

– warm creams
– beiges
– yellows

If you want a cooler white:

– soft blues
– purples
– grays

I’d love to see a picture of a white dress that you colored … feel free to send it to me at melissaATmelissajacie.com! ( Change AT to @ when writing me.)

Btw … there’s something really exciting going on over at Daughters of Decision! Check out a blog post on it here!
