I bought this comfy shawl-type sweater at Target a few months ago for an awesome Target price. I wore it a couple times and then recently, while flipping through an Anthropologie magazine, I found one that looked exactly like it being sold for much more than the Target price.
I was thoroughly pleased with myself for having an Anthropologie look for a Target price, but then I noticed the Anthropologie model was wearing it in silver. The one I had was tan and I thought the silver one looked much prettier. That's where I got into trouble.
When I was home this weekend, I spent most of my Saturday with my little sister and asked her to go on a mission with me to find silver clothing dye. We went to a Walmart, a Target and two craft stores before finding the last box of dye that was the closest thing to silver - pearl grey - at JoAnn Fabrics.
I bought it was $2.48 and took it home. My mom told me it wouldn't work but I was determined so she set me up with a bucket of hot water and a brick to hold the sweater in the dyed water.
Here's what the sweater looked like going into the bucket:
Here's what the sweater looked like when it came out of the bucket, six hours later (the box said only leave it in for two):
And here's what the brick, once bright red, looked like after coming out of the bucket:
