If you wash us, do we not bleed?

My red-on-white polka-dot dress bled in the laundry... onto itself. Is there any way to remove the pink stains while preserving the print?

Fabric is cotton corduroy, with a red poly lining (which does not appear to have bled, thank goodness). I did wash it according to directions, in cold water, and drip-dried, so hopefully the stains haven't set.
Google has a billion different suggestions, but I'm afraid to do a lot of experimenting that might just set or worsen the stain, or destroy the fabric. Anybody have a reliable, or at least a non-damaging, method for dealing with red dye self-transfer on printed fabric? Thanks!
