Can I redye patterned fabric?

Patterns are usually retained when redyeing, because textile dyes are transparent, rather than opaque. This often looks very attractive. In this example, a light pink dress with red flowers was dyed blue:

  • The strong blue penetrates well into the light pink.

  • The strong red flowers mix with the blue to create a shade of violet.

  • The flowers, however, are still clearly visible.
