Please Help. 

I tried to dye a swim suit that was black with a pattern on it all black. 

The swim suits was 80% polyester and 20% elastine 

I used Idye poly black and followed instructions. 

The swimsuit turned distinctively brown. 20200205_091216.jpg  20200205_091125.jpg Please can someone give me.some tips as to why this happened and how I can fix it and actually get it black? 

The suit had under shorts in in which were already black and stayed black. 

Please help.

Hmm that is weird.  It took the dye, but not well.  I would have expected better color pickup.  It's a fairly neutral brown, so it just need to get darker and maybe slightly more blue.  Did you actually boil the water?  How long did you leave it in the dye?

Yes the water was boiling and I left it for over an hour in the end as could see it wasn't taking.
