The approximate cost of dyeing a single item is as follows: 
Dresses: A full-length light-weight formal straight lined dress $75,
Knee-length light-weight cocktail a-line dress $60.
Wedding dresses have to be cost assessed individually.
Jeans: from fitted /slim-line ladies $35 to mens RM Williams at $50
Most
Shorts, tops, blouses, shirts $30/$35, depending on weight of fabric.
Jackets: from ‘bolero’ style at $35 to trench coats at $75.

Turn around time varies from one week to four weeks
depending on the dyeing cycle, when an item is received and mailing time.

The dyeing process uses the latest reactive dyes which are the best for colour fastness and are non-allergenic.
All items are dyed at room temperature to reduce the possibility of any shrinkage, equivalent to a gentle hand-wash.

 Please be aware that the main risks with the dyeing are:
the stitching construction exposed threads may not dye, stains may not be completely restored,
some shrinkage can occur, 
and COLOUR MATCHING is NOT carried out but where a colour sample is provided
attempts are made to get close to the sample but the results may be NOTHING LIKE the samples.  
These attempts cost a small amount above the dyeing price above.

THESE BASIC COLOURS CAN BE ACHIEVED, IF THE STARTING COLOUR OF AN ITEM IS WHITE.
IF THE STARTING/BASE COLOUR IS NOT WHITE,
THE ORIGINAL COLOUR WILL GIVE A RESULT THAT IS A COMBINATION OF THAT AND THE DYED COLOUR.

This dress below has had unstable dye run from the bodice into the white areas of the skirt section.
It has no fabric tags as it has been custom made.
It has been rescued, dyed in a strong red.
Any further running of dye out of the bodice area will now not show up in future.
The dress can now be hand washed, not dry-cleaned, saving a fortune.
The lining, in this close-up photo, dyed only partially, indicating that it was a dyeable-nondyeable mix,
probably a Cotton-Polyester combination.
