Dyeing fabric that has intricate sequin-type work on it.
I got my custom-made dress yesterday, and while gorgeous, it's the wrong color!
Sending it back to get it fixed is out of the question, unfortunately. I want to have it re-dyed from a bright pink to this deep red [pic
]. The problem is, the fabric has intricate zardozi
(sequin and bead) work on it, and it's banarasi
(has gold thread woven into it) [pic
--the zardozi is the leaf design, and the banarasi is the circle of golden thread to the left]. I don't want the delicate work to get ruined. I don't mind if the golds get dulled a little, though. The work is all over the fabric, as you can see here
. Any recommendations on how to approach re-dyeing this fabric? I don't want to attempt doing it myself because I'll most likely ruin it. I'm in North Jersey (close to NYC) if anyone has any recommendations.
