How to

So this is how I dyed my dress with the tea:
  • Fill a big pot with water and heat it until it's simmering
  • Put some tea-bags (I took 8) in the water 
  • Then put the dress in the pot and let it boil between 30-60 minutes depending how dark you want the color to be. Mine boiled for around 30 min (I'm way too impatient to wait longer than neccessary :)) You have to mix some times so that the tea bags doesn't make darker spots on the fabric.
  • 10 mins before you take out the dress, put around one cup of salt in the water and mix.
  • Take out the dress and rinse with cold water.
  • Put to dry, and then you're done!
If you do this I'd love to see your result, so don't you dare not telling me about it ;)
