Tie Dye DIY Kimono

A much cooler version of a cardigan and a great summer trend that’s transitioning nicely into fall, kimonos are the perfect cover up for unpredictable fall weather. Made from a XXXL t-shirt, this Tie Dye DIY Kimono is super easy to make with NO SEWING required. 

T-Shirt (I used XXXL)

step 1
Using the rubber bands included with your Tulip One Step dye, tie the part or parts of your t-shirt that you want.

I tied the bottom body part of the t-shirt and scrunched the top and sleeves.

step 2
Mix up your dye.

step 3
I used purple around the rubber bands with violet in between and on part of the scrunched top.

Then to give it a more fall feel I used the Tulip One Step Tie Dye Extra Large in Tea Stain all over the top scrunched part and all over the top of the violet and purple.

I let the dye sit for 3 hours before rinsing.

step 4
Rinse the dye out very well using warm to hot water, until the water runs clear.

Wash and dry your t-shirt.

Here are details of the tie dye.

step 5
Cut off the neck band and cut straight down the front creating a smooth line so that the front will hang flat. I also cut off the hems on the sleeves and the bottom of the t-shirt.
Cut your t-shirt along the red dotted lines.

If you want you can cut fringe in the bottom of the kimono or add a trim.
