Today - again, on a whim - I stopped by my local Michael's store to pick up some Rit Fabric Dye so I could get closer to my desired color, as well as the chain embellishment for the dress front.
My plan - wash the fabric to remove any finish from its surface and then proceed to dye it. However, while examining the fabric - and, of course, after serging the cut ends - I notice a stain that resembled mildew marks, as well as what appears to be a dried liquid stain. OMG!! ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!
The stain did not come out after washing. I think it's safe to assume I'll be making a return trip to Haberman to seek a refund. Very disappointed right now!
