I love tie dye :) It makes me think of sunshine and festivals, laughter and long days, friends and fun. So, with one optimistic eye to the coming summer, I did this today:
I was dyeing a shirt a rather lovely colour of blue, and popped in the t-shirt as well, just wrapped around with cotton string, for about 20 minutes or so. There's something lovely about unwinding the string, then shaking and flapping the soaking wet t-shirt to reveal the pattern - always seems to be pleasing, whatever :))
The shirt was one I've had for well over 10 years now; bought in a charity shop, but a rather unattractive shade of peach/beige sort of thing. I loved the style, and unpicked the front pleats to give a more smocky feel to it. It's now an ocean blue, slightly patchy/faded looking in parts, but I rather like that, looks "lived in" lol - I will definitely wear it more now.
