Default dyeing a Tuxedo

Anyone know much about dying fabric? I have a white Tuxedo jacket on its way to my house, I need to dye it bright red, (for a ringmaster costume) Any ideas about the best way to go about it? I need to do it this weekend so ordering anything online is out and I only have a Walmart locally...

Any help is REALLY appriciated!!!

Bathtub works best. You can lay the entire jacket out flat so that the color is absorbed evenly. BUT check if your tub would absorb the color first!!! Unless you want a red tub..... Check with a little spot in a corner and let it sit for a few hours. And make sure your tub is really clean too. Some chemicals might interact negetively with the dye. Most dyes come with very specific instructions. Shouldn't go wrong...

HTH! Remember to post photos!

I'd be most concerned about it turning out pink instead of red. Especially if it isn't 100% natural fibers. The fabric spray paint may be a better solution.

Have never had a problem with RITE dye. You can get it fr walmart. I would double the recomendations to get red through.

Yep I think the spray paint it the way to go, I read about the RIT and with it being polyester and formail wear with dryclean chemicals, it would probably be pink, I am crossing my fingers that Walmart has it!!! Thanks and if it turns out I'll post pics!
