DIY/OOTD: Tie Dye





A few days ago I tie dyed clothes for the first time. It was so much easier than I thought, and so fun!!
I tried to go with a color scheme for each piece of clothing, and a certain pattern/design. 
I'm really happy with it! 

Before starting I watched a couple of YouTube video's on how to get the swirl and the stripes. I definitely recommend doing that if you're going to try this out. 
I picked out a few pieces of white clothing, bought the tie dye kit, watched the YouTube video's, and it was as simple as that. 
If you're looking for a fun summer project, you should do this! 

I loved how the tank top came out so I thought it'd be a good time to get those hippie vibes going and do a quick OOTD!

That beautiful dream catcher necklace was sent to me by my amazing friend Sophie over on Soinspo. Go check her out!

  6. I'm not much of a DIY person, but you did a great job Chrisitna, love the final product.

    So sweet of Sophie to gift you that necklace, she's so kind isn't she? It looks so nice paired with that top and the skirt. I love your flower crown too and that tiny little bird ring-too adorable!

    Hope you have a great weekend!

  12. Aww wow Christina this looks amazing! Absolutely in awe of how talented and creative you are; the effect of the tie dye looks so professional and I wouldn't have ever guessed it was a DIY job if I hadn't have known. So clever! I manage to make a mess of anything like that so I don't even want to imagine what my effort might look like but I'm imaging a massacre scene effect haha!

    Thank you so much for your kind words and mention, the necklace goes so well with your beautiful top and I couldn't be happier that you're enjoying it; it looks so perfect on you <3
