Dyeing Velvet Pants

Dear DizzyLettuce:
I was wondering how to dye or if I can dye a pair of black velvet pants. I accidentally splashed some bleach on them and just want to dye them back to black. Will the bleach spots just come out a lighter shade or is it possible to get the pants back to black. If so, how many boxes of dye should I use?
Thanks for your help.

You can’t repair this damage yourself. Bleach spots are particularly difficult. They change the fiber so that it no longer takes the dye. Consult with Sherry at www.fabricdyeing.com and see if she can fix it up for you.
