Dyeing is the process of changing the color of clothing. Dyeing can be done in two ways, both of which are available at Emily's house: by using the dye pots and by using the sewing machine. Both are unlocked during a cutscene with Emily after obtaining at least 1 Cloth.

Dye Pots

The Dye Pots interface

You can change the color of clothing, using the Dye Pots to the right of the sewing machine in Emily's house. You must be wearing the item(s) you wish to dye (each item will be dyed separately at no extra cost).

To create a dye you have to interact with the pots and have an item in your inventory representing each color dye pot (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple). Items in your inventory will have a a color dot in the bottom left that corresponds with the color pot that they belong to. Hovering over each pot will also show the available items for that color. Once you have each pot filled, a dye bottle will light up in the menu. Upon clicking the button, the color bars from the 'create a character' menu will show up for you to create the dye/color that is wanted for the item of clothing, and the items in the color pots will be consumed.

Sewing Machine

The Sewing Machine interface

You can also use the sewing machine for a basic color change by placing the clothing item in the feed at the lower left of the sewing machine and the item to use as dye is placed on the spool at the upper right. The item on the spool is consumed in the process. There is a preview of the changed item in the sewing machine menu.

Using a Prismatic Shard to dye clothing will open a menu where you can choose any color using slider buttons.

When you dye using the sewing machine you get a combination of the item's current color and the item you use. For example, if you have a dark purple skirt, and add wool (white) as the dying agent, it will become light purple. If you add wool again to the new skirt it will become an even lighter purple. If you add wool again, it will be white. So Blue shirt + red item = purplish. Blue shirt + yellow item = greenish. Etc, Etc.
