It's my bargain from ebay, from benetton, a cropped zip up cordruoy jacket. I really love it but it's a really gawdy green colour, cross between lime and olive green. It also currently clashes with my pea green bugaboo !!!
I am blonde and wear a lot of browns....not sure I want it brown though. Was thinking of a deep purple??
Hate to rain on your parade but the existing colour will effect the final result. Brown would work but if you dyed it purple or red it would come out, er brown. Blue would work (would come out bluey green) or a darker green. Remember the thing about the stitches too, I have lived to regret dying several things because of this.
