just dyed

I’m really loving the look of dip-dyed or tie dyed fabrics on dresses this season. when I was in high school, a group of friends and I tie dyed our senior shirts. we were rebelling against the stark white shirts the senior committee picked out and chose bright shades of blue, pink, and yellow. it was really fun twisting and wrapping rubber bands in creative patterns on our shirts and seeing what we created. seeing these dip and tie dyed dresses makes me want to go out and buy a white cotton dress, band it up, and throw it in some black or dark blue dye. hm…. maybe a fun summer project?

    I love the idea of the monotone–the grays or blues. Our swim team tie dyed our shirts and whatnot also. It’s always fun to do it in a group!
