So I bought a white danskin jacket and DYED!  I found out that good ole RIT dye is not so good for that.  But that's ok because Tulip saved my life and my jacket!!  So through a painstaking process I finally came up with what I wanted.

First I sprayed the dye on and did everything right, then I washed it and It was salmon pink!!! not red to white ARG!!!!

Then I Bleached it, neutralized it and re-dyed it by setting half in a bowl.

After that I Hand washed each section and sprayed it of with a hose outside and then washed it again.  Then I hung it to dry.  I think I'll hand wash until I know for sure that all the dye is out.

Inspiration without application is moot.

Thanxs I like the seams lines too.  THe markers are FabricMate.  You don't have to set them or anything I LOVE THEM!! Anywho I don't know if  they fade or not I haven't dealt with that much yet.
