RIT dye job gone wrong-help!

Recommended Posts

I tried dying a nylon petticoat royal blue and it came out lavender! The waist band and thread are royal blue (because of the cotton content, I'm sure), but the nylon ruffles and satin ribbon edging are lavender. I used RIT dye which said it works on nylon, but use vinegar-which we did. I'm at a loss and my dd wants this to go with a dress she is making for 4-H. Any ideas on how to fix this and get royal blue?

There are a lot of great tutorials online if you look for them. I dye yarn sometimes but only do wool or such and use koolaid or egg dye.


But there are other dyes out there and things you can do. You can also overdye and you might get something more like you are wanting.


Wish you the best of luck with this.:001_smile:
