dyeing clothing to cover a white spot

Name: Teresa

Message: I have a lovely linen suit that I ruined trying to clean a spot. Can it be died with fabric dye? It is fully lined and a lite turquoise color right now (with a big white-ish spot), but I would not be too picky about color as long as I could wear it again. Many thanks.

Please see the appropriate page on my web site, which covers the repair of white spots on darker clothing:


Remember, however, that you cannot dye anything that is not washable. Lined clothing is almost never washable. You may be able to find a fabric marker of the right color. Good luck.

(Please help support this web site. Thank you.)
