Kimonos are everywhere here is a NO-SEW dyed adaption from one I made on my blog. See my original kimono post here
. The one above you can make yourself
2 Studs *Optional
Cut up the middle of your shirt
You are going to cut out a 4 inch section in the middle
and then cut around the collar.
Your shirt will look like the picture above.
Cut off the hem and then cut your fringe about 4 to 5 inches long.
Accordion fold your shirt.
On the left side of the shirt rubber band 4 sections .
Then on the right side rubber band 5 sections,
in between what you rubber banded on the left
Then rubber band again each section
until you can not rubber band any more.
Put a rubber band in the middle of the shirt.
Fill up your dye to the line with warm water.
Place your shirt into a bowl.
I used the turquoise color first and then the darker blue to fill any white left.
Place it in a zip lock bag.
Then rinse out until the shirt rinses clean and let dry.
I placed a stud on the seam at the shouder
so the seams would not come apart.
If you do not have studs,
You could glue this or hand stitch this as well.
Looks kind of like a skull with a crown.
Tie dye is a fun and easy way to create all kinds of things.
It is always a surprise when you open it up
because they always come out different.
Here is another Kimono I did with Fringe.
Oh and did I mention it is no sew.
to see how.
