1. How Many Colors?
Add 50 for each Light Color and 100 for each Dark Color you would like on your dress.
(ex: Red, Orange and Yellow = 250)
2. Fabric Layers?
For one color options you pick a main color. I slightly darken that color along the rim of the dress. I then follow that with a large section of color you choose followed by lighter tints until it's blended out completely.
Three or More Colors follow the same process just with more transitions. Keep in mind for soft ombre fades the colors need to mix well. For example you can't have red and yellow without orange in the middle, unless you dont want the colors to fade together. Bellow are some examples of 3, 4, 5, and 6 color fades.
Types of Trains
SWEEP - Also called the “brush,” this train is less than a foot and a half long, barely dusting the ground.
CHAPEL - The most popular and most traditional choice for brides. They extend between 3 1/2 and 4 1/2 feet from the waist.
CATHEDRAL - Chapel trains taken to the extreme. They extend between 6 1/2 to 7 1/2 feet from the waist.
MONARCH - Extending 12+ feet from the waist.

For two color options you pick 2 main colors that blend well. I use the darkest color along the rim of the dress. I then blend that color into the 2nd color. Lastly blend the 2nd color out completely so your dress is back to its orginal color around mid thigh.
