I know you said you don't want to dye, but maybe a quick dip in some tea would take some of the harshness off the white? Then it would be more off-white/eggshell/ecru whatever they call that. The ribbon idea is another good one. I'm envisioning grosgrain ribbon in multiple sizes (colors up to you) layered on top of one another in a sort of fish-scale way (?making sense?). OR if you are a painter, paint a design on there. Or embroidery. Or cut the thing up and make a top and a skirt out of it and wear each peice with a loud print with a tiny bit of white in it - then you'll be glad its so white! Good luck!
