That will depend on the fiber content of the fabric, the current color, and the color you’re aiming for.

If they are polyester, you are probably out of luck – it’s really difficult to get it to take dye. If they are a natural fiber (cotton, silk, linen) you might be able to do something with them.

Rule of thumb: it’s much easier to go from a lighter shade to a darker one, than vice versa.

I dyed my davids bridal silver Bridesmaid or Best Man dress to cornflower blue after I wore it in a wedding. My friend did it for me with a dye you use in the washing machine. The outer layer took the color well, but the inner layer is still silver.
