Light Pink Tie Dye Dress


Dazzle your friends with this light pink dress from I Love to Create. All you need is a Tulip Custom Color Dye Kit and a cotton dress. In six easy steps you can wear this dress all summer long.


  • Tulip® Surface Cover™
  • Tulip® Custom Dye Color Kit™
  • Tulip® Craft Gloves™
  • Dress – 100% cotton or natural fibers
  • Container – plastic – 2 gallon
  • Rubber bands
  • Spoon – large – extra-long handle



  1. Cover work surface with Dye Surface Cover™. Set plastic container on covered surface and wearing Craft Gloves™, follow booklet instructions to create Guava dye (or desired color).
  2. Prewash dress to remove sizing. Do not use fabric softener.
  3. Lay damp dress out flat on work surface. Pull up a section of fabric from the bottom right corner of dress and wrap a rubber band around it. Continue pulling corner of dress into a tube shape and wrapping rubber bands around fabric until you have a total of five rubber-banded sections. Make sure sections are evenly spaced apart.
  4. Mix dye Wearing rubber gloves, mix 1 gallon (3.8 liters) of hot water (equivalent to hot coffee, around 170° - 190° F (77° - 88° C) but not boiling), dye and pour 3 tablespoons salt for each dye mixture. See charts for different dye color formulas and combinations. The dye mixture should be sufficient to dye up to 1/2 pound (22 grams) of fabric, equivalent to a large men's T-shirt.
  5. Immerse fabric into dye mixture. Stir continuously for the first 15 minutes, then occasionally every 5-10 minutes for the next 45 minutes. Total time will be one hour.
  6. Fill washer to "large load" setting with hottest water suitable for fabric and a small amount of laundry soap. Wash and dry separately. Wash separately the first few times. Do not allow dyed fabric to rest wet on other items.

This pattern is fun and elegant. Pink and Purple are my fav colors... Maybe I'll just have to do one of each color. -) FavCraftsTieDie

FaveCraftsTieDye I love the bold design use of the tie off element!
