DIY: Ombre/Tie Dye Sundress

Written by , Posted in DIY

Okay so I know that the summer we’re having isn’t even really summer, it’s basically summer on steroids, but this is a perfect DIY for a cute summer coverup for the beach, pool or summer day outing! I was contacted via tumblr by a girl who requested this really cute tie dyed dress from urban outfitters, and I really only used the dress as inspiration as you’ll see that my dress looks absolutely nothing like the UO one (I got a little dye crazy!). This is also a great DIY to just go wild with your creativity, there’s no rules when it comes to tie dying!!
