The following is a guest post from our friends at I-Spy DIY.
Tie-dyeing was one of my favorite hobbies in my childhood, so you can on image my excitement when it popped on Michael Kor’s SS 2012 runway. 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.
Steps in Making a Tie Dye Skirt
Supplies: White cotton skirt (made by the amazing Alison at Burda Style), purple dye, bucket, rubber bands
1. Start with your white skirt
2. Fold it back and forth accordion style
3. Gather together the entire skirt.
4. Wrap your rubber bands around the skirt, each spaced and 1.5 apart.
Make sure they are tight, so the dye does not seep in.
