I'm obsessed with this tote...
So being in my tie dye mode and seeing what Jennifer did with her husby's old t-shirts, I just had to post! Check her project out...
This summer my hubby was about to get rid of a bunch of old white t-shirts that he wears under his work shirts. My husband thought it was about time since some of those shirts were as old as my 8 year old! Yikes! But being the sentimental closet hoarder that I am, I salvaged those gross-armpit-stained-overly-stretched-out-necked shirts!
I made tie-dyed summer dresses!
Let's see how Jennifer's summer dresses come out!
The dress is made from 2 shirts. (My hubby wears an XL shirt and I wear a medium-ish size dress). The body of the dress is made out of the body of the shirt. The bust is made from the sleeves, plus a sleeve from the second shirt. It took 3 sleeves because I wanted to cut out the armpit parts (Eww, I know!). The straps came from the second shirt.
Then to kick it up a notch, I tie dyed it! I folded the dress up like an accordion, rubber-banded it together and then folded the bound up dress again accordion style.
I loved it so much, that I made another dress! I tie dyed the t-shirts first this time, then made it into a dress. That made the colors more saturated, but harder to match up the patterns on the fabric.
I hope you like them! Thank you so much for all inspiration! Never stop creating!
Jennifer!! Thank you so much for sharing your awesome dresses - they really are perfect for the summer. Isn't dyeing so addicting?! I'll have a few more dyed pieces coming up soon...get out those old white tees!!
