Wow where has the month of May gone to?! I was lucky enough to squeeze this refash in! Hope you enjoy!
Once again I found myself rumaging through the clothes my mom gifted me and found this top! I LOVE plain white tops, there are so many possibilities!
I used Rit’s liquid dye in Hycainth.
- Fill washer machine with HOT water (enough for the garmet to flow freely)
- Add 1 cup salt in the washser along with the liquid dye. Use an extended cycle.
- Rinse the fabric in HOT water and add to the dye bath in the washer.
- Once the washer is done filling, be sure to set the water temperatue to cold (for the rinse cycle)
BE SURE to clean the washer IMMEDIATELY with hot water and 1 cup bleach.
This came out a little deeper purple than expected, but I’m still happy with it!
My next step was to make the top more fitted but I didn’t want to take in the sides because that would mess up the cool bunching on the front. I toyed around with a few ways to make it tighter and ended up really liking how I pulled the excess fabric together in the back.
To accent the bunched fabric on the front I added 2 white buttons.
After I sitched the excess fabric in the back I added a white button to pull it together.
