boho tie dye dress

Tie dye, slip dresses are fun to make using vintage slips and fabric dye. You can read a full tutorial on how to make this boho, blue and white striped, slip dress at the Rit Studio
 boho tie dye slip dress
This pretty, pink boho slip dress is available to purchase via my Etsy shop.   
I created this pretty pink by adding 1 cup of food processed cranberries to the pink dye bath made with Rit powder dye for a super unique color. We rescued this retro cabinet to refinish.
The saddle brown slip dress I created, and sold via my Etsy shop looked awesome paired with cowgirl boots. 
The lace accents and banded bodice on this denim blue slip dress, also sold via Etsy, are super flattering.

  2. I haven't tie - dyed in so many years but remember the fun of taking the rubber bands off and revealing the pattern of the colors. Yours are soooooo pretty.

    I really love these...might have to give it a go. I tied dyed with my kids, but of course the palette was a bit bright. You chose some lovely colors.

    Have a great day!
