The dip dyed theme is really getting common. Starting in the summer with the dip dyed shorts and fringe shirts, we have now transitioned to dip dyed cardigans! If you don’t know what dip dyed means, it is when you dip part of your clothing that you dying, usually the bottom, into to dye to make a cool almost ombre affect to the piece. You can do about any color as long as there is dye available to you in that color. A cardigan dip dyed would still keep the style in but also give you a new clothing piece for the fall!

1. an old cardigan

2.bleach

1. Find a old cardigan that you are willing to dye.

2. Pour your bleach into a jar to the desired height.

3. Place the ends of the cardigan evenly and then tie it off at your desired height that you want dyed with a rubber band.

4. Carefully dip your cardigan into the bleach for about 5 minutes. After you waited for 5 minutes rinse the cardigan well.
