Tie Dye Process

I got a big bleach blotch on one of my favorite dresses and instead of throwing it out I attempted to camouflage it. I tie dyed it with bleach so that the discolored spot would look intentional. It did not turn out like I wanted but here are my process photos.

If you ever find your self wanted to tie dye… make sure the rubber bands are VERY tight! Lesson learned. Zander also got a great shot of the dress drying. At least we got a cool photo out of the process.

All of these photographs will also be linked to my August Break Set on Flickr.
