Hippie Chic

We have a fancy dress/costume party coming up and the theme is “Hippy/Hippie” (I think it’s spelled IE but the host thinks Y so whatever)

Of course the obvious place to start was TIE DYE! (Yay!) 

We grabbed a $6 fabric dye kit which contained 3 different colours in easy to pour bottles and went to town. 

I wet each item first (not sure if I was meant to but it worked) and experimented with different techniques suggested in the “how to” pamphlet that came with it. 

   
 

  
8 hours of “setting” later, I washed and dried them…. Here are the results 

  
         

My costume consists of a long floaty dip-dyed skirt in a grey-navy tone so I made a less vibrant vest-top to wear with it BUT I may wear the pink and blue vest-top instead depending on how I feel on the day. Here is the less vibrant one…   

All in all im happy with the results, it was a fun activity and good excuse to get messy with my little man 🙂 

 
(He wasn’t happy because I had just asked him to help me weed the garden ha ha!)

Here is the link for the dyes I used http://tiedyeyoursummer.com/get-inspired.html

And this is the “pin” on Pinterest which helped with my ombre vest-top http://www.mybeautifulmessblog.com/2012/10/10/successful-ombre-dyeing/

Apologies if this post doesn’t work well, I’m writing it from my phone *eeeek* I’ll post pics once the costumes are complete 🙂
