Fading checkered clothing...is it possible?

Help! So I've bought DD red check summer dresses for school, and it turns out that she needs pink check ones.

I can't return them to get replacements for a while and she is really excited about wearing them.

Is it a completely insane idea to chuck some diluted bleach in the wash? Will this work or ruin them?

Anyone have any other ideas?

I would try it for sure. But only a very little in a full wash...a capful and wash them on hot.

Rinse in lemon juice water and peg out in the sun maybe?

Can't you just tell her they're dark pink? Im sure they'll fade in the wash/line drying.

It's not really sunny enough today. It's DD that will want to wear it but I'm not entirely sure the school will allow it, the check is very dark.

May as well try it out with one of the dresses.

Poundland sell Ace laundry bleach, which is meant for keeping whites white, but I imagine it also has an effect on the coloured bits.
