You will need:
- fabric dye
- a plain white cotton tee shirt (I used a Hane's Men's large, so it would be long enough)
Fold the tee in half so the sleeves, neckline and ends line up. and mark where you want to cut. Cut the sleeve off and close to a v-neck neckline. Remember you can always cut off more later, so don't go crazy at first!
Cut a couple strips from the sleeves and use them to tie the back of the tank together. I had my sister try the tank on and tie them while she was wearing it so I got it right. Here's the finished tank!
Next is dying it! (My favorite) Prepare the dye according to the manufacturer's instructions, mine used about 4 cups of water, 4 tablespoons of salt and the dye. Dampen the fabric with warm water for the best dying. Put the tank on a hanger and dunk half into the dye. I held the bottom of the tank in the dye longer to get a gradient effect.
Squeeze out some of the extra dye starting at the middle of the tank (the top of where the dye is) and all the way to the bottom. Don't hate on my makeshift glove, haha!
I say almost because this was right after i dyed it! Let the tank sit until the dye dries (mine ended up being over night) and iron the dyed part so it sets. Wash in cold water and wear!
Have any questions, comment below and I hope you like it!
