Hi... I just finished dyeing a shirt for first time. The shirt turned out close to black, but not as dark as I wanted. My question is: The thread (seams) did not take the color and remained whitesh) Any way to color the seams as well as the shirt? Thank you Jackie

The thread doesn't dye because it's made of polyester. It's usually not worth the effort to redye with a polyester dye. If you think it is worth the trouble, boil the shirt with iDye Poly.

There's a page about this on my website: "Dyeing thread in pre-sewn clothing", at http://www.pburch.net/dyeing/FAQ/clothingthread.shtml .
