Lightening the Color of Polyester

I have a bright pink dress made of polyester, and it is so bright. I would like to lighten the color quite a bit to a much lighter pink. What do I do?

E-mail or call these guys, they are AMAZING! They will sell you a dye remover. They know ALL about dyes (& removing them too!)

It has been my experience that polyester will not take dye well, nor will it release it. I would leave this alone. Give this gown away, and get another one.
