Now, remember the solid beige shirt I'd dyed streaky maroon and then bleached out with Rit color remover? After I machine laundered it, it lost most of its beet color and now looks rose beige with (subtle) pink blotches.
I'm afraid that if I dye it darker the blotches will be more pronounced. Should I try it or just leave as is? It's subtle now but might look funky darker.
In closing, I feel much more confident about dyeing fabric and very open to doing more of it. Yes, it's time consuming and uses obscene amounts of water, but it is fun.
