Okay, I am leaving town on Monday morning and one of the outfits I have planned to wear is going to include a bright red tank top dress. The dress only came in white and is 100% cotton, so I thought I could just dye it. I bought the tulip brand dye, Bright Red, and followed the directions exactly. It's a fuschia color! Sadly I had to order this dress, and I won't have time to get it before I leave. Sad I've been looking at this site: http://www.dharmatrading.com/Color_amp_Dye_Chemistry/index.shtml  and it looks like if I dye over it yellow it should make it the bright red that it's supposed to be. Now, I'm really new at this (I've only dyed one thing before, and it came out fine) so I need all the help I can get :/  What do you guys suggest?
