T-Vest , Re-Styled

I Re-Styled my T shirt-vest.  
What? Me, Re-Style something ~ 
Scandalous! 
Original T-shirt to Vest tutorial 
HERE
I  did a different back, reworked the front a little, and added a little color. 
I think it makes it look so different.
What do you guys think? 
I would love your input! 



Changing it was easy.
This is how!

Tutorial


You need This
and these

Rubber-bands
I found mine on some yummy broccoli that I  had bought.


Now~ I have never tie dyed  before, I know that sounds crazy, but it is true, so I was truly excited about this.
And when I unwrapped the rubber bands... 
I was so thrilled to see how it worked.

Once the garment soaked  in the dye for ten minutes, took it out, rinsed it really well, and washed it with a little detergent, then I hung it outside to dry.
and that was it.


Have a wonderful Saturday!!

  12. I've been trying to figure out what you used to tie this dyed one. Was it seam-strips from the cut portion of the t-shirt that you also dyed? Or was it something else, like cord?

    Hoping to find x-large t-shirts here in Uruguay!

  13. Can you make the back differently to change style? Can it be left plain?
