How can I dye my dark blue flight suit to light blue?

I'm trying to go as John Glenn for Halloween (I work someplace with his name on it). Specifically I'm trying to go as this
picture. The suit is apparently a light blue as you can see here
. I got a navy colored flight suit, but the color is really dark - it looks almost black in some light. Is there a way to make the suit a lighter color of blue?

is the flight suit I got. You can see the dark blue of the navy there when you click on the color. The suit is a 65/35 polyester/cotton twill. I've heard it's difficult to change the color of polyester, so this might not be feasible, but I thought I'd ask the hivemind! Even if I can't hit the exact color of the real suit, if I could just get it a little lighter, that'd be great.
