Lovely shirt!

Another red dye tip--vinegar. Lots of it. You can add it in with the salt, ( although I do recommend holding the olive oil). I do know it sounds ridiculous but vinegar will work if an acid mordant was used. ( Test a swatch to see if it helps!

Great looking top! Sorry to hear about the dye -- some of those reds aren't fast. Hope the salt helps.

Thanks for the tip. I have the shirt soaking in salty water at the moment. Fingers crossed :-)

Great top, and I was just about the mention salt but can see Renren has beaten me to it.

Gorgeous! I would buy this in a flash as RTW. Have you heard of fixing or setting the dye by laundering with salt? I have read about it but not really sure if it works. (By the way, I covet your wardrobe.)
