Dyeing a Nylon Dress

I would like to know how to dye a bridemother's dress made of nylon, it is of cream color. I would like to turn it into dark blue or maroon.

In my experience, natural fabrics like silk and cotton, can dye well. Nylon, Rayon, Polyester etc. do not. Is there a specific dye for NYLON? I don't know - but just letting you know from my experiences so far.

Synthetics are very hard to impossible to dye.

I agree with everyone else. If you do try to dye it, prepare yourself that it may not turn out. Good luck!
