How to Make a Tie Dye Skirt

The following is a guest post from our friends at I-Spy DIY.

I love this monotone take on the look, and decided to try it out on a skirt that the lovely ladies over at BurdaStyle made for me (check out the post here). I went with purple because I wanted a color to transition from the Summer to Fall.
