Bridesmaid Dress Made Of Nylon/Polyester

My daughter is going to be a junior bridesmaid and the dress we found is pink nylon and polyester. The wedding color is cherry red. Is it possible to dye this dress and get a solid even result?
If so, what dye is recommended?

Dear Pat,
Sorry – no. Polyester does not take the dye and a formal dress such as for a jr bridesmaid has too much construction detail and trim to even risk it. Take a photo of the dress and have a seamstress make it in the color you want. It would be beautiful in silk dupioni and probably around the same cost.
Happy wedding,
