Rainy Days - Constructive Advice Please

I have a new cardi (off white) that got stained when the non-colorfasted lace (navy blue) of one of my jackets bled onto it while out in Monday's freezing rain. T_T. I immediately threw it in the wash several times with 7th Generation Non-Chlorine Bleach, Ecover concentrated detergent and Ecover softner. I let it soak for 24 hours in the bleach and detergent.

So far, it has dulled the color from a vibrant navy to a faint lavender stain. I am tired of treating the entire cardi.  So, I dried it and then put bleach on the stain using (natural) q-tips for accuracy. I will let it sit for atleast 48 hours before washing it... yet again.

The reason I listed the specific types of cleansers I used, is bc I am wanting more advice on the subject using only earth friendly stain removers. Any suggestions?  Constructive advice is appreciated and desired.  Thank you!

JSK Sketch

Hello everyone! I'm pretty new to lolita fashion, but after doing some research I've really taken quite a liking to it. Here's a quick sketch I did of a mountain themed JSK.

Let me know what you think! I've also been teaching myself to sew lolita clothing as well. Half the fun of lolita for me is making everything a nice craft project. 

PS. - I'm completely new to live journal, so please let me know if I've done something wrong in my post.
