So, I'm working on a Vanellope cosplay (from Wreck-it Ralph), and she has striped leggings. My big ones turned out pretty good, because I waterproofed the areas I didn't want to dye beforehand, but my smaller stripes are a mess.
I dyed using a mixture of kelly green and teal from Rit (liquid dyes), and I dyed on leggings that are 95% cotton, 5% spandex (essentially 100% cotton) fabric. I need the non-dyed areas to be white.
Would diluting bleach and applying it to these areas help solve my problem? I know bleach isn't super recommended for natural fibers, and I'll be keeping an eye out for dye remover, but the only time I can get to Walmart is tomorrow, and mail is an issue because of the weekend (I'm a terrible procrastinator don't hurt me sigh).
If bleach doesn't seem like it would work, any other thoughts? Obviously, worst comes to worst, I cut up a t-shirt and sew some stuff on, but it'd be nice if I didn't have to.
