Boring shirt...No more!

Although it’s not a new idea, I couldn't help but to try it out. I came across an old shirt (men's shirt) and I found my perfect canvas to try this technique. The result is an amazing colorful loose shirt that can be worn as a tunic but also as a dress! Grab your markers and let the magic begin!

Step 1
Once you have your "canvas", you will need some markers. I used my Letraset Pantone in various colors. Next the most important is the alcohol that will give the artistic tie-dye effect. Some rubber bands, also. You will see why…

Step 2
Place the fabric on a plastic cup or small vase and secure with the rubber band. Make some random designs on it.

Step 3
Once you have your design, spill with attention small amount of the alcohol. That's the magic moment. You will see the colors mixing into amazing shapes. To see the final result you can use a hairdryer if you are impatient like me...

Step 4
To complete the new look of my shirt, I added some studs only in the collar. After a couple of minutes my new shirt-dress was ready and fabulous!

 Try it and you will say "No" to boring shirts!

Good Luck
