Lanky vs Lace: Round One

I picked up this too small dress because I knew I could do something great with the lacy top layer.

I ripped out the seam between the top and the skirt because that was also too tight, and then cut out the liner.  After that the lace went in a dye bath that was half RIT navy and half crimson.  The lasce was polyester so I knew it wouldn't take much dye, but I figure a pale purple would be easy to work with.

Instead it came out pink!  The blue didn't take at all.  When I dyed a shrug with a different RIT blue it didn't take any either!  This was so frustrating since I am not a pink person, and especially not a pale pink.  Ugh.  I'll have to figure out something else so I don't have to toss this.
