Dip dyeing is so addictive, it’s amazing I haven’t dip dyed everything I own. I made this maxi a little while ago by dying some gorgeous white silk and then making a maxi skirt out of it, I chanelled a little bit of sass & bide by giving the skirt two large side splits.
Here’s a rundown on how I did it.
– around 2 m of white silk
– pink dye
– a bucket
– elastic and a needle and thread (or sewing machine) to sew the skirt
1. Hang – Fold your fabric in half and hang it on a clip hanger.
3. Dry – Leave the fabric to dry and then machine wash it to set the dye.
4. Sew – Finally, make a simple elasticated waistband maxi skirt out of the fabric using the process I showed you here (http://apair-andaspare.blogspot.com/2011/01/diy-sheer-black-maxi-skirt.html
) – but this time make a front and a back panel and leave the side seams open for your desired split length.
