  • You can always use RIT, but you run the risk of messing up the quality of the fabric.

    I suggest keeping them white. Noone will notice any difference between that and the ivory. About the only thing they will remember is your dress and the food.

  • We did my headpiece lace and a few other things with tea. My mother set up different "strengths" of tea so we could zero in on the right shade and so things would not be to dark. Use some scraps of fabric to make samples. Have fun!

  • Tea will give you a lighter ivory, coffee a darker. I would not use rit.
