    • Use enough dye. The more dye you use, the brighter the colors will be.

    • Use different colors. Mix and match different colors to create unique patterns and designs.

And then I sewed the two parts of the dress (the wrap-top part and the rectangle-bottom part) onto opposite ends of the elastic.  Make sure that the right sides face each other, or in other words, inside out.

I attached it in a similar manner that I attached the elastic to make a skirt top. This elastic was smaller in width than the one I use for skirts. Be sure to streeeeeeeetch the material on the one side being fed into the machine, but not the other.

Unfortunately, I didn’t make my bias tape long enough to go to the back. ????  So I enlisted the help of my husband, who marked the back of the dress for me at my bra straps, and then I sewed on another long piece to make a tie.

I didn’t like the hem of the bottom of the t-shirt, but if you want to stop that this point, it is perfectly hemmed.  I cut it off and made a lettuce hem on the bottom, too, because t-shirt material often has an annoying way of stretching out when you wear it.

One final piece, I sewed along the back-top with an elastic thread, so that it made it elastic-y, since I was not entirely happy with the way the lettuce hem worked out there.

I made a 4th of July outfit a few years ago, but I wasn’t feeling it.  It came out pretty nice, but I felt I could come up with something more festive for our Independence Day. So when I saw a sale at my local Goodwill for plain white men’s t-shirts ($1 each, yo), I bought the entire stock pile. And this beautiful dress was born … I’m just so ecstatic to show it to you!

Materials Needed for the Tie Dye Independence Day Dress

Some of my links are Amazon referral links. I’d appreciate it if you clicked on one. It costs you nothing, but I get a small commission. Thank you for your support!

Choosing the Right Fabric for Tie Dyeing

Before you begin, it is important to choose the right fabric for your tie-dye dress. The best fabric for tie-dyeing is cotton because it absorbs the dye well and holds the color. You can also use other natural fibers like linen, rayon, or hemp. Avoid synthetic fabrics like polyester because they don’t absorb the dye well and the color may not stick.

Preparing the Fabric for Dyeing

The next step is to prepare the fabric for dyeing. Wash the dress in cold water and let it dry completely. This is true even if you pick something up at the thift store. (Also, you don’t know where that’s been, ewww gross.) Don’t use fabric softener or dryer sheets because they can prevent the dye from sticking. Once the dress is dry, lay it flat on your work area. Smooth out any wrinkles or creases so that the fabric is even.

Tie Dye Techniques – Spiral, Bullseye, and Stripes

There are many tie-dye techniques you can use to create different patterns and designs on your dress. Here are three popular techniques that you can try:

Spiral

The spiral technique creates a beautiful spiral pattern that starts from the center of the dress and radiates outwards. To create the spiral pattern, follow these steps:

Bullseye

The bullseye technique creates a circular pattern that looks like a bullseye target. To create the bullseye pattern, follow these steps:

Stripes

The stripe technique creates vertical or horizontal stripes on the dress. To create the stripe pattern, follow these steps:

Since I’m using a small bowl, rather than a large bucket, I picked up something different than I normally use.

The first part is to make the wrap-like part, so I took out a bra for measurement.  Using underneath the sleeve as a guide for the bra curve, I measured a healthy amount and marked it with my blue marker.  Sorry, it kind of blends in with the blue of the fabric.

Update: If I had to do this over again, I would add about an inch or two on all sides of the bra for more coverage.  So it depends on how “low” you like to go.

Using my bra as a guide again, I made a mark to where the top of it would be.  As I later found out, you want to be pretty generous with this.  I “made” it at the final dress product, but I could have given myself another half of an inch to two inches.  So, be generous with your seam allowance.  If I had to do it over again, I would say at least two and a half inches from the bra top.  (Here is more like an inch and a half.)

Update: Please be very generous with this!  You can’t undo!

Then, measure to your bra.  You will need to hold it up to your chest several times to get it correct.

Update: In the original version, I made it fairly close to the bra line. If I was going to do this again, I would be sure to add several inches around the chest area.

I attached it in a similar manner that I attached the elastic to make a skirt top. This elastic was smaller in width than the one I use for skirts. Be sure to streeeeeeeetch the material on the one side being fed into the machine, but not the other.

Unfortunately, I didn’t make my bias tape long enough to go to the back. ????  So I enlisted the help of my husband, who marked the back of the dress for me at my bra straps, and then I sewed on another long piece to make a tie.

I didn’t like the hem of the bottom of the t-shirt, but if you want to stop that this point, it is perfectly hemmed.  I cut it off and made a lettuce hem on the bottom, too, because t-shirt material often has an annoying way of stretching out when you wear it.

  5. I do love the fun ideas you come up with and your photos help so much to follow the steps. Such a good idea to use a bra as a measurement guide and the white binding makes it look very stylish. A great outfit from 2 plain t shirts. Have fun on 4th July!

    Thank you for sharing with me on #Trash2Treasure
