    Are you going for ESB? I just dyed mine last night (LadySewForUs). Here's a photo.

    I dyed mine Rit Evening Blue. I know everyone else here recommends Royal Blue and Pearl Grey, but for ESB, they all look way too dark. I was recommended this colour by Ruffkintoy, and I think it turned out great.

    Hey GCNgamer,

    I have the same suitand dyed it evening blue. Is it too light? or tealish? Or maybe It needs weathering to darken it up. I guess I should post a pic but it looks like yours. What is your opinion. Thanks!

    That Evening Blue looks great! Not too dark.
    It looks like the proper "blue with a hint of grey showing underneath".... from the pics anyways

    Just order your dye from the Rit website. I used evening blue and Pearl gray for mine.

    From what I see, mixing in the Pearl Grey makes the jumpsuit too dark. From my point of view, the Evening Blue on its own is perfect.

    I purchase my Rit Dye at Michaels. It's an arts and craft store, I'm not sure if they have it up in Canada.

    Re: DYING JUMPSUIT

    Well, that's because I used I whole packet of the Evening blue and only a quater packet of the Grey and soaked it for 15 minutes in hot water. I've been told that my suit is spot on by many many people. I guess it all depends on what color your suit is to begin with.
