Remember this WHITE hoodie?
|My WHITE hoodie|
The one that's finished, but has only been photographed in 1 out of my 3 planned looks?
I had it on, ready to be photographed for Look #2 this afternoon, when my husband pointed out, "There's a couple of little stains on it. Why don't you run it through the wash, and we'll photograph it later?"
In with the white hoodie was a several-months-old red t-shirt that had been through the wash at least a half dozen times.
You guessed it, the hoodie is now pink. It's on it's second run now of being washed by itself with oxyclean, but I'm not sure that it can be saved for this contest. (We're going to be out of town Weds-Fri.) I don't see how I'm going to have time to make a 6th garment to replace it. I've still got about an hour's worth of sewing to go on my pants, too.
I wasn't going to win anyways, but I am incredibly bummed out by this. I feel like a marathon runner who turned her ankle at mile 25.
I am also open to suggestions on how to save this, if it's at all possible. The top is made out of cotton-lycra jersey, if that helps.
We got a photo of my ill-fated top last night. The lighting is poor, but you can definitely see that my previously white top is now baby-pink. *sad face* My husband will be home today and has promised to give the Rit dye remover a shot on this. If that doesn't work, I'll be picking up some Rit dye on my way home, and we'll go a different direction with this piece.
