Tea Dying a vintage veil

I am borrowing my fiance's mother's veil for our wedding....it is a chapel length so it had many stains and holes from 40 years ago.  I had the hold patched and then had it cleaned to remove the stains.  Of course the cleaning was necessary but now the veil is BRIGHT WHITE.  My dress is ivory.  I have read about tea dying- curious if any have tried doing this?  or know of anyone in the twin cities metro that offers this service?  I just want to calm  down the bright white - so it does not clash.  I am not looking for a match.  Thanks!

    If it was me, I'd buy some similar fabric and try tea dying it to see how it turns out. Once you've perfected the process, dye the real veil.

    I know this was posted 10 days ago...but I'm going to be wearing a vintage dress. Today my sister helped me add lace straps to my dress. We ended up tea dying the straps that were originally pretty white, so it would match my dress better. We just looked it up online, and it worked great! I'm sure you'll be able to dye the veil yourself.
