Refashion Tutorials: Make an Ombre Shirt

This ombre shirt tutorial from Cotton Curls is a great way to update last season’s shirts without ever needing to step foot in a store. I’ve seen dip-dyed pieces everywhere lately, but it looks like it would be way more fun to save the money and make my own!

Materials:
water
dye
item of clothing to dye
salt
soda ash (optional)
pins
gloves (optional)
Dye preparations:
Follow the instructions on the dye box as how to mix the hot water, salt, and dye (you can add soda ash, but I didn’t). I used Tangerine orange RIT powder dye, which was only 2 bucks! You will need some sort of bucket of container to put the dye in. It was convenient doing it in a pot because I could boil the water and keep it warm if I needed to on the stove.
Shirt preparations:
Make sure your shirt is clean and or bleached to get the best color! Completely soak the clothing item being dyed with cold water, squeeze out ALL of the remaining water so it isn’t dripping anymore. Then lay it flat and pin 5 sections out. These will be your layers for your dye to make an ombre effect. Now you are ready to ROCK!
Dye Instructions:
1. Put the shirt into the dye till it reaches the top set of pins, this will be your first layer —– HOLD for 30 seconds
2. Pull the shirt up till it hits the second row of pins, this is the second layer —- HOLD for 1 minute
3. Pull the shirt up till it hits the third row of pins, this is the third layer —- HOLD 5 minutes
4. Pull the shirt up till it hits the fourth row of pins, this is the fourth layer —– HOLD 5 minutes
5. Pull the shirt up till it hits the LAST layer, this is the last or fifth layer —– HOLD 5 minutes.
**For best results HOLD up the entire time so lines don’t form (I learned this the hard way) if your arms get tired, like mine did, you can rest it over your pot or whatever you are using, for a little bit.
After Dye:
Take out pins and rinse it under cold water till the water runs clear. Be SUPER thorough. Then dry it – I think air drying gives the best results!

Now it is ready to wear! Thanks to Martha Stewart and the RIT box for the help!
