DIY Fashion Craft: Ombre Clothing

Who says that following the hottest fashion trends has to be expensive?
You can indulge your love of fashion without creating a huge void in your wallet with this DIY fashion craft.

Today's fashion trend comes to you courtesy of ,what I believe is this year's most 'have-to-try' trend, of all seasons.

An ombre shirt is kind of the 'modern' leg up to the well-known Tye-dye shirt.
This trend has even managed to make its way onto the runway in dress form, as seen below.

Here are instructions on how you can become your own ombre-ista and create this fashion 'must-try' now!

What you'll need:
1. A Shirt, any type of shirt as long as the color will stain it properly. Tip: Preferably us a white button down shirt like this one.
2. Scissors(Optional). This is for if you wish to cut the sleeves and the collar of the shirt. 

3. Dye. Any color of your choice. 

4. Hot water.  

5. A plastic basin.

6. A rod (to push your clothes into the water).

Lets get started!

1.Pour the hot water in the basin and mix in the dye color of your choice.

2. Mix the water with the dye, stir it using the rod. 

3.Then dip the shirt quarter of the way, almost nearing the bottom, soak the for two minutes. Then move the shirt up and soak it in a longer period of time. 

4. Your done! (quick wasn't it?). Now attach two pegs to your shirt (Tip: Do this very carefully as to not stain your clothes) and hang it up to dry. Tip: Dry the shirt for a minimum of 5 hours.

There you have it! Now you can go out and rock this trend in the street, at work or at school.

I will be posting my own version of this really soon, so stay tuned for that!
