Dyeing from olive to black

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone. I bought a really neat military jacket at an army and navy store this summer. I love everything about it (the silhouette, epaulets, cinched waist etc) except the color. it's a light green/lt olive-ish which i am not particularly fond of....does anyone know if i can have it dyed black and if that's possible, how black can it get? thnks guys.

If it's made of natural fibers, it shouldn't be a problem to dye it. The thing that might cause a problem is the kind of thread it's sewn with; they're often polyester or other such fibers which means they can not be dyed. So, you might end up with a fabulous black jacket with contrast stitching... To determine if the threads are synthetic you can burn a piece of thread: if a hard plastic ball is formed, it's synthetic.
