A much cooler version of a cardigan and a great summer trend that’s transitioning nicely into fall, kimonos are the perfect cover up for unpredictable fall weather. Made from a XXXL t-shirt, this Tie Dye DIY Kimono is super easy to make with NO SEWING required.
SUPPLIES YOU NEED:
T-Shirt (I used XXXL)
Using the rubber bands included with your Tulip One Step dye, tie the part or parts of your t-shirt that you want.
I tied the bottom body part of the t-shirt and scrunched the top and sleeves.
Mix up your dye.
I used purple around the rubber bands with violet in between and on part of the scrunched top.
Then to give it a more fall feel I used the Tulip One Step Tie Dye Extra Large in Tea Stain all over the top scrunched part and all over the top of the violet and purple.
I let the dye sit for 3 hours before rinsing.
Rinse the dye out very well using warm to hot water, until the water runs clear.
Wash and dry your t-shirt.
Here are details of the tie dye.
Cut off the neck band and cut straight down the front creating a smooth line so that the front will hang flat. I also cut off the hems on the sleeves and the bottom of the t-shirt.
Cut your t-shirt along the red dotted lines.
If you want you can cut fringe in the bottom of the kimono or add a trim.
