She’s become obsessed with a few different YouTube channels, including Jacy and Kacy of CraftLife who taught her how to do tie-dying. After tie-dying a few cool t-shirts for herself, she offered to dye me a frock for Frocktober. So I found this one cheap and second-hand on eBay, and on the weekend she set to work.
Didn’t it turn out great?
I was so proud to tell everyone that this was made by my kid. She’s also obsessed with Jen from Cookies Cupcakes and Cardio, which led to her asking for a tie-dyed t-shirt cake for her birthday this year. I think we did a pretty good job of meeting that request.
When my friend Darling Hat saw today’s dress on Instagram, she said she was having a 1990 flashback. So allow me to indulge you with a few 1992 tie-dye flashbacks.
We were so obsessed with tie-dyeing stuff at home, that I remember my boyfriend Steve saying that as soon as he moved out of his parents’ house and got his own place, he was going to tie-dye all the curtains and everything in the house. (It never happened – he grew up way cooler than that.)
If you’re a tie-dye fan and you’ve enjoyed this tour of tie-dye through the ages, maybe you’d like to make a donation to the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation via my fundraising page here: https://frocktober2015.everydayhero.com/au/Eilis
Big thanks today to Susan (who I’m pretty sure would have rocked some tie-dye in her time) and to Emma (who I know has a secret stash of frocks we rarely get to see) for their donations. Emma, I’ll see what I’ve got in the way of roses and pens..
