Argh can I rescue my top?

I must have leaned on something bleachy, I'm so annoyed with myself.
Do you think I could put a dye on top? The top of the top is embroidered so not sure how I'd do it. Help!

A photo might help

Depends what colour the top is and what it's made of. I've had luck in covering bleach stains with a Sharpie marker in the appropriate colour. Generally dye doesn't take very well over bleach.

Best to fill in with a sharpie to be honest . The dye is unlikely to take over the bleach .

I'd agree about the marker pen or a biro. This is the reason I don't use bleach!

I'll give it a try but I think it's a lost cause tbh. Thanks for the advice

As an alternative, bleach stencilling might give it a second life?
