Rit Dye On Swimsuits

I have a bright pink (fuchsia) linen suit that was exposed to bleach in a small spot. I am going to try to dye the suit navy blue. Is Rit dye a suitable choice or is there a better dye available for this purpose? Also, should any particular steps be taken to aid in a successful project? Lynne

Hi Lynne,
This is very difficult to do. Start by reading my article on Fabric Dyeing 101, http://www.fabrics.net/DizzyLettuceArticle.asp. Keep in mind that the lining, thread, and any zippers will remain their current color. If you still want to proceed, I suggest that you contact Sherry at www.fabricdyeing.com and see if she can do it.
best,
Jennifer
