Plaid Skirt Dilemma!

I'm cosplaying as Serah Farron. The decided to tint my fabric with dye to make it more red, like the character. When I dyed it...the plaid went out entirely. I tried washing out the plaid, but it didn't work out.


Can I possibly paint the plaid on by using fabric paint/tape or iron on/screen print a design? I want to know which method worked the most for the cosplayers out there.

Thanks!

Trying to understand - you dyed the fabric, but saturated it so much that it's a solid color now?

If this is the case, you could try bleach on a little test strip.

Depending how much you bought, and how much it cost, I would suggest just buying new fabric. A mini skirt like that wouldn't need more than 1 yard. It can't be that expensive to just buy it again.
