A step-by-step guide to making groovy garments


Groovy tie-dye

So, you wanna learn to tie-dye?

I'm Emily. I don't praise The Byrds. I don't use the phrase "far out." I've never hitchhiked my way to San Francisco. But I do love tie-dyeing. Who doesn't enjoy playing around with dye, making a mess and getting a new t-shirt all at the same time? I only dye a few times a year, but once I return, I become addicted again. I begin dyeing a single t-shirt and end scrummaging my drawers for any garments that are remotely dyeable. I must give you a fair warning before embarking on your tie-dye adventure: once you start, you'll never stop.


Whether you're new to tie-dyeing or a seasoned dyer, hopefully this guide will help you discover your inner hippie.
