Possibly. I’ve never dyed curtains before but I have worked costuming in theatre and have experience dyeing different fabrics and clothing for shows. the 100% cotton will make things easier! 

If you decide to go for it…. use Rit dye! It’s seriously the best. I think if you follow the instructions carefully it can be done. Just be sure to leave it long enough…. your washing machine may not be the best place to do this if they don’t fit…

It would be easier for you to make or buy new curtains.  The orange won’t make it to a decent looking navy and you would need something big enough to dye them in so that the fabric can move freely and take the color evenly.

Do you sew or know someone who sews?  If you do, you could have curtains made in whatever color you like.
