Dyeing A Satin Dress

Hi:
I have a satin bridesmaid dress that I would like to dye black. It was custom-made, and I really like the cut, but I have no need for a purple dress now that the wedding is over. I tried dying the shawl myself with Rit dye, but it did nothing. I found your address during a Google search and noticed you’re in Austin. Any suggestions?
Thanks, Kara

Kara,
Sorry, polyester and acetate, the fibers of most bridesmaid’s dresses, cannot be dyed with any kind of ordinarily available dye. Even if the dress were 100% silk or rayon, it would be hard to get it to be solid black.
