    i like it very much. And i think i always do something wrong in dyeing because at the first time i washed it the color go all around the garment. Your skirt is WHİTE how did you make it stable. Can you please tell me :) And i must say skirt’s colors are awesome..

      I didnt use any kind of fabric dye. just a normal ink. i blended the ink with water, and used a brush to get the “tie die” effect. i ALWAYS iron the garment before washing it. The heat allows the ink to set and i wash it on the coolest temperature possible and hang dry it. there has been a little leaking into the rest of the skirt, but it seems to be pretty stable at this point. i hope that helped!!
