As the title suggests, looking for help with a possible dying job I want to try


I've worked with fabric for many years but I've never tried dying any of it... (it seems like a really messy process and I just can't deal with messes)  ::)
In conclusion, I can leave you with no better advice than that given after every sermon by Msgr Vincent Giammarino, who was pastor of St Michael's Church in Atlantic City in the 1950s:

    "My dear good people: Do what you have to do, When you're supposed to do it, The best way you can do it,   For the Love of God. Amen"


I've dyed cloth in the past, with Rit dye.It was pretty easy.
"Make merry, and be glad: for this thy brother was dead, and is come to life again; he was lost, and is found."


So here's the project: I have this jacket

I also ordered it in the brown as a work/hunting jacket but decided the brown was much better for wearing out and about. I'd like to save money and dye the blue one some sort of olive/brown drab earth tone. Maybe a base of yellow and some brown?
