  • How to dye an ombre. Ombre Tutorial - Step 1
    Step 1

    Don those rubber gloves and let's get started!

    Dunk the shirt in warm water and wring out. This will help the fabric to absorb the dye better.

    Drape the hoodie on a hanger with the hood and shoulders hanging down on one side.

    Tie the sleeves around the hanger hook to hold it onto the hanger and away from the dye bath.

    Dunk top half (hood & shoulders) in the dark dye bath for 6-8 minutes. Gentle swishing will help for even distribution for the dye. As you remove it from the dye bath, squeeze out excess dye.

    Now aren't you glad you've got those rubber gloves?

    Remove from the dye and rinse under warm water, holding the light section up so excess dye flows down to the dark areas. Then run under cool water until the water runs clear.

    You can use the same dye baths to make the matching tank. This time drunk the bottom of the shirt in the dark solution for a reverse effect. It'll look adorable peeking out of the bottom of the hoodie.
