Dyeing A Red Unitard Green

I purchased a red unitard which I believe is cotton/lycra. I wanted to know if it would be possible to dye it green. What shades of green would work best?? Please advise.
Thank you,
Alexandra

Dear Alexandra,
it is possible to dye cotton/lycra, but it’s difficult to move from red to green. You will basically be mixing colors. You could try a dark green, like forest green, but you will definitely get a muddy shade of reddish green. Especially if the red unitard is dark, or very bright, like fire engine red – this is going to be difficult to cover. Don’t try it with Rit. Go to www.dharmatrading.com and get information on the reactive dyes for your red unitard.
Have fun,
Jennifer
