More adventures in dyeing

I have this great coat of my grandmother's.



I've been subconsciously craving an emerald green coat and this coat needed some freshening up anyway.

So, I used the RIT dye formula for emerald green (lemon yellow and evening blue..
alas,
my mystery-fabric coat does not accept dye.



The liner sure did.  And it did freshen up the color, at least.


I think I may alter the length on this a bit (I'm a shorty...5'3"), and it might be more flattering.  And it does have a belt which is cute.
