I knew it had to turn green but didn't want to go so dark as to obliterate the pattern. In retrospect, dark would have been pointless; nothing could have made that brown and pepto-bismol pink disappear. Anyway, in the absence of soda ash, I tried green tea. Nope - the fabric turned a barely beige. Went to the studio, picked up some soda ash and then this morning, overdyed it (again). Better, don'tcha think?
