It was a long linen top from Seasalt, so not cheap - I had splashed bleach on it. It was a sort of dark yellow/ochre colour. Was sitting there for ages waiting for me to either do something, or chuck it out.
Couldn’t find a similar Dylon colour, so yesterday bought an olive green machine Dylon, plus the pre-dye stuff to reduce the original colour.
So 3 machine washes later, the olive green colour has taken perfectly, and looks very nice - but the stitching - there’s a lot of it and it’s evidently polyester - is still ochre!
Looks so wrong, I’m going to have to chuck it anyway.
I had something similar years ago when I dyed some stained cream summer trousers navy. The stitching stayed cream, but in that case it looked entirely as if it was on purpose - I wore them for ages.
