Repair Week: Tie Dye

tie dye

At the beginning of the summer I had a plan to remake some of my favorite garments that had become too frayed or discoloured to wear anymore. It’s a long story, but I took them to a certain tailor in Riverdale who basically did nothing with them for months (not funny story: he finally called to tell me they were ready to pick up and when I got there they were not only not ready, no work had even been begun).

So I decided to try dying this peasant blouse myself. That and my Cat Flag t-shirt. While the t-shirt took the dye in perfect hippie fashion, the weave of the blose was probably too loose and the expected spiral effect didn’t quite happen. Which is probably a good thing because I don’t want to look like a dead head.
