Dip Dye DIY

Post image for Dip Dye DIY

She drips in color comes to mind whenever I see this trend — it brings a certain happiness to tees,dresses, shorts, shirts… almost anything! And it has become an eye opener look for spring and summer.


We love how dip dying your basic tee gives it new life in a fun and creative way. There so many different ways you can experiment with In this technique that you can kind of get carried away – here we love the subtle approach with a sprinkled burst of colour.

Follow these easy steps to create your very own dip dye tee — you can also do it with cotton dresses too!!


dipdye Dip Dye DIYWhat you need: A tray, 1 measuring cup, salt, Dylon dye of any color(not the machine washable ones)   heavy duty cleaning gloves and a basic white tee

17 Dip Dye DIYMix a quarter of the Dylon dying powder into the tray with 4 cups of warm water and 4 tablespoons of salt. Once the powder has dissolved, fill the train up with water to make a very dilute color. Soak the bottom of the tee so the color will trail up it nicely.

22 Dip Dye DIYPlace the tee slowly in the color until you see the color running up. Keep it in there for 1 minute (you want the color to be quite faint), then drain the excess water and rinse in the sink under cold water.

33 Dip Dye DIYHang to dry for 15 minutes until it’s damp.

43 Dip Dye DIYTake the leftover dye powder and sprinkle onto the tee as much as you like. It creates a lovely speckled effect.

53 Dip Dye DIYHang to dry. Once it’s fully dried and the dye had absorbed in, give it another rinse in the sink and dry again. Then you’ll have your very own dip dye tee for the summer!

I like that purple top! The speckled effect makes it sort of cool and unique.
