One plain white, cheap cotton T-shirt, made to look very Isabel Marant!
Here was our inspiration:
Take one plain white T-shirt and soak it in water.
Scrunch the T-shirt up and tie into a bundle.
Mix 1 teaspoon of Charcoal Procion MX Dye with 100mls of warm water.
Mix 1 tablespoon of Soda Ash into 100mls of warm water.
Mix the two solutions together.
Pour the mixed solution into a squirty bottle. And squirt the dye over the T-shirt. When the T-shirt is covered put into a plastic bag and leave for at least 2 hours for the dyes to react with the fibres. The longer you can leave it the better.
Rinse the T-shirt under cold running water. First, rinse it whilst it is still tied up and then when the water runs clear undo the knots and rinse again.
After the water runs clear you can wash the T-shirt in a washing machine. We would recommend using Metapex on a 60′c wash. Metapex will remove any remaining excess dye. (If you don’t have any Metapex you can use a non-biological washing powder/liquid).
The finished T-shirt!
