Treating Stains (Non-Colorfast Fabrics)

I tend to handwash my lolita clothes, brand or homemade, simply because I don't trust the machines. Except, oddly, when I went to handwash my Swan Lake skirt from Baby, it turned the water in the sink and in the shower where it drip-dried a bright, bright pink. Apparently, the reds/pinks weren't as colorfast as I thought they would be, and so now there's a light pinkish tint over everything in the skirt, especially around the gathered parts of the waistband. I used freezing cold water and only a little bit of detergent.

Is there a way to fix this? Should I try taking it to a drycleaner?

Thanks~!
