Who says that tie dye is a summer-only fashion statement?! I collected a few fallish pieces and a tie dye kit to answer this question! After lots of dyeing, I have some new fall clothes that I’ve already been wearing and can’t wait to wear more as the weather cools down! Here are some of the supplies I started with…
My first dye subject was a cotton flannel shirt from the thrift store. I didn’t want to cover up all the plaid, so I applied purple dye to only the bottom of the shirt. I love how the purple dye seems to fade into the plaid! I definitely want to dye more flannel now…
You may recognize this maxi dress from this previous tie dye project! At the time, I didn’t use enough dark-colored dyes to get a clear dye pattern on the dark dress. This time, I applied a whole additional bottle of purple to get a darker color! I really like how the dark colors are more subtle than most tye dye, but are still obvious.
My next project started with a stretchy, tunic-length hoodie. Although the directions recommended using the dye within 72 hours of adding water, a week had passed since I had opened the dye bottles. The dye washed out to a much more subtle color than expected, but I was surprisingly happy with the results! I would definitely recommend using the dye shortly after opening, but it’s good to be reminded how tie dye “mistakes” can often turn out pretty cool! 🙂
Of course, I had to try out my new fall clothes!
