Tie Dyed Knit Wrap Dress

Added Apr 17, 2014

I almost tossed this fabric in my donate/scrap box of stuff but pulled it out to give it new life. It was a plain, bright white, but after washing it, the material took on a hazier dull white… I’m on a fabric dyeing kick so I did some fun experimenting with this super stretchy, soft bamboo rayon spandex knit.

So of course a bright pink tie dye job was in order. I used liquid Rit Dye in Cherry Red in very hot water. I followed Rit’s recommended dyeing directions for rayon fabric.

The pattern is a super easy mock wrap dress McCall’s 6884. Every girl needs a wrap dress, right!? More on my blog Kathy Sews.

    Somehow I missed that you dyed the fabric! Now I REALLY love it!!

    Now I feel like I have to dye this (6 yard) cut of not-quite-white knit that I got from Hancock. For now, it sits mostly unused because it isn’t bright enough.

    Thanks! :)

      Yeah, just get a big bucket (I used a huge, old pot meant for canning) and dye a chunk of it. Wear gloves and some nasty of clothes, it gets splashy sometime.
