diy pleated fabric dyeing

March 16, 2014

This is my favorite method for dyeing fabric. I think the finished effect is more chic and modern than tradition tie dye. This is a great way to makeover white tops, bed sheets and even towels!


  • White cotton shirt
  • RIT dye (I prefer the liquid over the powder)
  • String
  • Bucket
[Lie your shirt down flat and smooth out any wrinkles. Starting at the side, fold the end over about  2 inches]
[Repeat folding in a over-under motion until the whole shirt is folded]
[Tightly tie the length of the shirt up with the string and place into the bucket of dye (follow the instructions on the bottle). When you are finished, thoroughly rinse out the shirt in cool water and then machine wash and dry]
