Hello! I ordered faux suede for my seamstress to construct a costume for me. I wasn't told until after the construction of the garment that the colors are completely off. I am hoping to darken this skirt to a very dark brown. It is faux suede with faux leather triangle embellishments throughout. Do you have any tip son what dye to use?

Here are a couple of photos: http://i614.photobucket.com/albums/tt229/michelle171401/IMG_1284_zpsn8yfquyq.jpg

The problem with this project is that you cannot preferentially dye the leather and not the embellishments. They will both dye the same color. You might want to paint this instead, but it is hard to say. Is the leather absorbent at all? The different portions that are brown do not match. that is the problem?
