Yes it's possible but the threads will more than likely not take dye as most threads are polyester. So you would probably wind up with contrast stitching.

If you do dye, please post a picture of the before and after.


I think a professional can do it well. There are plenty of designers that first construct garments and then overdye them. Comme des Garcons does it all the time. I am just not sure if there are places that provide such services to the individual.

Just beware that a bad (black) dye job will run on other clothing as well as while being drycleaned. you do need to find a good place, and frankly, I think this is much more trouble than it'd be worth.
