Not sure this is the right topic but.....

I bought this dress from eBay. I though it was light pink with yellow flowers but it's an off white pale yellow colour with yellow flowers.

Would a dylon pink fabric dye work to change it pink, or would the flowers go a funny colour.

The flowers would be dyed too and no saying how they would end.up!

The yellow flowers would go orangey and the blue bits faintly purple I imagine.

Nooooo! It would look like you left a red sock in the wash.

Also, any stitching is likely to remain unchanged.

Hmmm, not sure I'd dye then. I don't want to waste more money buying dye if it's going to look worse.

Pale yellow just isn't my colour. Maybe it will look better with a tan. Maybe I'll resell.
