I wanted to try my hand at dying, so with her permission I tossed the shirt in a steaming pot of half navy blue, half teal RIT dye. When it came out I sliced it and resewed, creating a seam that was meant to give the illusion of it being a wrap. I removed the sleeves and cut a new neckline because she wanted a tank top. Then, inspired by The Renegade Seamstress's piece here, I got to pining and sewing. And here's my friend modeling the result!
The dye job ended up uneven, but she and I both liked it that way. Artistic pintucks are lots of fun!
