    From my experience dyeing white material; often if the material will take the dye, the threading won't. You may end up with the suit the color you want but the stitching will remain light or even white. Some one suggested using a color felt marker to touch up the theading. I have yet to try this.

    Thanks for the heads up! I used to work in a place that made T Shirts and we had a special thread we used on shirts that were going to be dyed. I hadn't considered this being the case with the FTC stuff

    If this is the same on I got from them it does dye ok but has the thread issue that Dr Cyclops mentioned

    I use RitMore Dye to get the suit the base color. I touch up the thread with Fabric Ink in matching shade.
    Tedious but easy to do with a small detail nail brush.
