I found these navy and black tees on sale and I loved the fit, but I thought that they were a little plain. I wanted to jazz them up a little, but in a subtle way, so that I could still wear them under a jacket or with jewelry.
Typically if you want to tie-dye something, you have to let the dye set for 6-8 hours. With this method, you can be done in less than ten minutes.
Using bleach in a spray bottle, I was able to control how much of the shirt was altered and how much color was removed.
Step 1: Supplies and stuff
- a clean dark tee shirt - the darker the better
- a spray bottle
- some rubber bands
- a bleach-proof space
Arrange your tee in your bleach-proof space. I have a plastic mannequin set up on my work table. But you can just lay it flat on some plastic bags.
