upcycled thursdays: printed shirtdress
This was such a fun upcycle! This purple dress has been sitting in my closet for years. Yes, years. I bought it from Target at some crazy low price thinking I would wear it all the time. Fast forward a few years and it hasn't been worn once. It was time to give it a new life.
I started by dying the dress with Rit dye. Then I created a polka dot template and used fabric dye to carefully paint each circle. It took a lot of time and patience, but I adore this new dress!
This was the first article of clothing that I've printed this way. I must say, I've become a fan! It was a ton of fun and now I have more projects racing thru my head. Have you ever printed anything?
