Dye-ing for your help...I caught a case of fabric buying mania a few weeks ago on Gorgeous Fabrics and I added this turquoise denim to my cart with the grand idea of making another pair of Clovers with it. I basically saw the words "turquoise" and "stretch" and hit "purchase" without actually looking at the fabric. Now that I've received it, I've noticed that it has a kind of metallic quality to it and it's a little more blue and less green than I had pictured in my head. This is obviously my fault for not really looking at the picture online, but now I'm trying to figure out if I can successfully dye it. Its' a cotton blend denim and I bought Rit dye in "teal" so I'm not planning on changing the shade too drastically. I just want it a little less shiny and a little more green. Any words of wisdom/warning?
